Natasha Smart is a full-time felting artist and educator who has been wet felting since 2005.  She specializes in the felting on a ball resist technique to create felted bags, baskets and bowls, which she regularly teaches on workshops at her studio in the seaside town of Exmouth, Devon on the UK south coast.  

Natasha loves experimenting with wet felting techniques and materials to develop new projects, which has led her to create several online courses and tutorials on wet felting.  She has also written over 25 magazine project articles covering felting and textile craft, including for the International Feltmakers Association (IFA) magazine Felt Matters in September 2022.  Her first book, Wet Felting, which covers all aspects of wet felting, from flat felting to working with both two and three-dimensional resists, was published in April 2022.

Sharing the magic of wet felting has become a real passion for Natasha and she regularly shares videos and photos of her workshops and wet felted pieces on her social media accounts, where you can find more inspiration for your own creations.
