About Chrissie

Chrysalis Art to Wear

I am Chrissie Menzies, a Textile Artist living and working on a small Montgomeryshire farm in Mid Wales. I love working with colour and my work is inspired by Welsh landscape and gardens. Leaves and flowers from our own garden and farm are used in the making of my Eco Printed scarves.

I specialise in high end, quality, handmade felted fashion and home accessories using hand-dyed fibres from small artisan producers. The range includes handmade wraps, scarves, bags, rucksacks and brooches along with Eco Printed scarves and wraps. Carefully chosen fabrics and threads are used to enhance aspects of my work, which can be seen in the hand felted Rucksack. I often add hand or machine embroidery to other pieces. Attention to detail is paramount in everything that I make.

I am mainly self taught and have attended various courses with international tutors to gain knowledge and perfect the Art to Wear Range.
