Pat Moore has been working with fibre since the age of 10. For many years knitting was her craft of choice. In 2006 she was introduced to the wonderful, addictive world of felting where she takes loose wool and finishes it by various binding processes.
Pat took her first wet felting course through the Yellowknife Guild of Arts & Crafts and was fascinated with how using only wool roving, soap, water and lots of elbow grease you could make unwoven fabric. Her life has not been the same since.
Pat makes wall hangings, scarves, vessels and other decorative pieces. Pat also dyes wool and silk fibres, needle felts, dabbles in silk fusion and ashari shibori.
Pat has exhibited her art at the Prince of Wales Northern Heritage Centre for the Yellowknife Guild and Arts & Crafts, the Northern Frontier Visitors Centre and at Art Week with the Aurora Arts Society. She sells some of her work at various craft venues throughout the year.
Pat is pursuing her felt education through the ArtyBird Centre in Carnforth, England. She is taking City & Guild felt making courses and recently having obtained her Level One Certificate.
She loves to create northern scenes such as this one, Oliver’s Market Garden, based on a photo of a potato garden in Peace River Flats in Yellowknife back in 1956.
