Hello and welcome to my visual sketchbook: to log all the art ventures I immerse myself in. Snippets of my work can be found on here along with classes I teach, exhibitions I am inspired by and anything that generally makes me smile.

Please beware I am not the best and 'once in a blue moons' are plentiful here. Have fun looking and feel free to drop me a line with your comments. You can if you so wish follow me on Facebook Angela Lai Yen - Printmaker and Textile Artist.

Bye for now.

Felt is fab!!

I never thought I would ever say the words 'felt is fab'. When I was a little one, all those years ago, I used to utterly dislike felt: I used to dislike the way it was simple and how it was odd to the touch, sort of like a squeeky rough cotton wool, and most of all I disliked all those stick-on-felt pictures!! Now however I think felt has possibly won me over. It is so easy to use and the colours are endless, and there is just no better material when crafting with kids.

I have once again been conjuring up exciting projects for all those little (and big) creative fingers out there, and with Easter fast approaching what better way to spend an hour or two than making funky felt egg cosies. Be the envy of any breakfast table.
