Tamzen Lundy is a textile professional of 25+years’ experience. She has worked on all sides of fashion retail, design and manufacturing. Since 2020 she has focused her time on her own arts practice, describing herself as a felt maker and textile artist.
Felt making is the oldest textile making process in the world. It uses 100% wool (and sometimes other natural fibres), soap and water plus rubbing, rolling by hand to make a fabric that is strong and long lasting. The processes are sustainable, and the product is biodegradable.
Tamzen’s work is playful and experimental. She is inspired by stories and the Irish landscape. Born in Belfast in the late 70’s, she works from her home in Maynooth, Co. Kildare.
