Learn more about Kristen Walsh

Kristen Walsh has been involved in creative things her whole life. She has been exploring fiber for many years – first knitting, then spinning and finally felting.

Kristen has been earning attention for her felting, winning prizes at the Old Saybrook Arts Show, Marlborough Arts Center and Glastonbury Arts Show in Connecticut, selected as a Best in Show finalist at the Neptune Festival in Virginia Beach, Virginia and having work selected for publication in Fiber Arts magazine and Cloth, Paper, Scissors magazine.

Kristen also enjoys teaching and finds great satisfaction in helping people who might not think they are creative find the creative spark that she believes lives in all of us. She has taught out of her home, at art centers and galleries, schools, senior centers, fiber festivals and shops. Most recently she was selected to teach at the New York Sheep and Wool festival – one of the largest in the country.

Kristen sees no end to the possibilities with felting. She wants to continue exploring felting through continued teaching as well as creating her own felted art.

Kristen’s work can be seen on her website:
