by way of introduction

Hello there, I’m Fran ♡

I make things with my hands, mainly using wool and other natural fibres: hand spun yarns, naturally dyed felt, hand knit jumpers. But most especially I make  traditional mohair teddy bears.

I make things with my hands because when I do, I feel more calm, hopeful and courageous.

It’s as simple as that.

Life isn’t always simple though. It can be beautiful and brutal, full of dizzying highs and desperate lows. But making things with my hands helps me to navigate through these ups and downs. And also helps me to remember who I am beneath it all.

I make things with my hands, but really it is heartwork not just handwork. My work is a balm for my heart. I hope it will be for yours too.
