Lou Tonkin Textiles & Prints

loutonkin1Lou Tonkin is a textile artist & printmaker in Gorran Haven creating beautiful felt & textile artworks & prints.

I specialize in artwork made by hand from felted wool cloth which I collage together with vintage fabric, from this I make fantastic unique art works, gifts, tea cosies, treasure wallets, bags, needle cases, cards etc.

I studied illustration at Falmouth collage of art in 2000 & have been a working artist ever since. I also teach workshops in drawing, felt-making, rug making & print-making amongst others.
