Stop-motion, needle felting, and spools of wool, these are all the elements Andrea needs to make animated gold. A self-taught animator, with over 500,000 Instagram followers Andrea impresses with her absolute attention to detail. She can take a wisp of material to mimic the breeze, rain or hair, while taking a larger clump to fashion hands, boulders and fish. Without hiding her textiles, she is able to completely transform felt and wool, creating worlds with depth and charm. 

Based in Port Townsend, Washington, Andrea has championed local businesses and short films. But with a growing online following, and a complete command of the craft, Andrea is branching out. We’re so glad to have worked with her on her latest branded piece for Elder, and are excited to continue collaborating with her and her wool worlds.
