Clare Linford





Clare has painted in watercolours for as long as she can remember, and has carried her love of colour into textile art, especially silk painting and felt-making.

She creates wearable art from silk and fine fleece, as well as decorative pieces featuring animals and birds made from fleece from local rare breed Shropshire sheep.

As a member of the Guild, and the Ffeisty Ffelters, Clare’s work can be found at Showing Off and Gorgeous, as well as other Shropshire shows, fairs and galleries.

For almost 15 years, Clare has also taught a wide range of craft courses and workshops to participants of all ages and abilities, from beginners to City and Guilds students. Many of these are at Westhope Craft College, but she also visits WI groups, schools and other venues.
