Carmen Ditzler

Carmen Ditzler - Felter, teacher and knitwear designer

Find me on a walk poking into nooks and crannies, pockets full of rocks and treasures.  Fascination with nature is at the core of my art- noticing textures, colours, and weird lines.  It's been 10 years now, captured by wool, making felt in a crooked little studio, heated by trees in the Kootenays of British Columbia.   Seeing what wool will do, what happens to the colour and the surface and the texture is endlessly fascinating.  I have taken workshops with some fabulous felt artists in person and online and made an infinite number of mistakes to develop my skills. I have recently started taking my passion for knitting further, by designing easy patterns for beginners to experienced knitters.
