Elegant adornment for the body and nourishment for the soul are what is imbued into June Hope’s unique and contemporary hand-felted wearable and visual art. Colour, style and flair are hallmarks of her work.
Often organic and textural in nature, June’s original, one-off works are definite statement pieces. Whether it be a scarf, wrap, garment or hat; guaranteed it will be a talking point at any occasion. Click here to see images from the photo gallery.
June artistically combines the finest Australian merino and/or alpaca fleece often with silks and other fabrics and fibre. 'These are my art mediums: I paint with fleece and fibre' is how she describes her work. This is then hand-felted using traditional wet felting methods and hand-rolled into a fabulous felted fusion of colour and harmony. Click here to see the wet felting process explained.
Each of June’s handcrafted pieces reflect the joy and inspiration of a person who is doing what she loves and ‘midwifing’ it to the world.
