What a truly awesome from defashiondorset

A new exhibitor is joining us this year at Defashion Dorset, who uses a well known craft to create a material that can be used in a number of applications, making it a useful textile to be aware of.

We're thrilled to introduce you to @madebyjulesindorset , a sustainable maker based in Sherborne! Jules brings together a beautiful fusion of ancient craft and contemporary sustainability in her creations.

Using the age-old technique of wet felting, Jules crafts an enchanting array of handmade items, ranging from adorable baby booties to intricate buttons and stylish bags. Each piece is handcrafted with care and a commitment to eco-conscious practices.

All creations are made with local materials, reducing the carbon footprint while supporting the community around her, which includes alpaca fibres sourced from nearby small-scale producers. By repurposing this otherwise wasted resource, she not only adds unique textures to her creations but also champions sustainability in every inch.

We're absolutely delighted to announce that Jules will be gracing Defashion Dorset on Friday, May 24th, and Saturday, May 25th, 2024. This is your chance to witness firsthand the magic of her creations and connect with a maker who is reshaping the world of fashion with sustainability at its core. There is also an opportunity to learn wet felting techniques at Jules’ workshop on Friday 24th May at 12.30.

Purchase your tickets on our website now and explore the full list of exhibitors.

Join us as we celebrate craftsmanship, creativity, and conscious living at Defashion Dorset. See you there!
