Jennifer Tsuchida is a Toronto felt artist who is enchanted by the magic of turning wool fibre into a cohesive felted fabric. Employing both traditional and modern feltmaking techniques, Jennifer creates hand felted sculptural pieces of functional, decorative, and wearable art. She is at once inspired by the natural world and the underbelly of the darkest corners of her imagination.
Throughout the years, Jennifer’s work has been exhibited in galleries as well as non-traditional exhibition spaces both nationally and internationally. She teaches feltmaking workshops nationally, and in September of 2015, was invited by the Head of the Textiles Department at Sheridan College in Oakville, Ontario to conduct a lecture and demonstration on her art of feltmaking.
Jennifer is a Craft Professional member of Craft Ontario and is a member of Surface Design Association, International Feltmakers Association, and felt :: feutre Canada. Her art has been published in “Studio Magazine: Craft and Design in Canada” – Spring/Summer 2015 edition, “Filzfun” – Spring 2016 edition – a German magazine dedicated to the art of feltmaking, and in the book “Worldwide colours of felt” – a Dutch publication, 2016.
