The Wild Felter


My Story

Molly Ellis is the needle felt artist behind the Irish wildlife brand The Wild Felter. Molly trained in Fine Art in Crawford College of Art and Design in Cork. She always had an affinity with wildlife and it seemed like a natural progression to use raw materials from animals as her tools. “One of my favourite pieces is the Kerry Way, I only used raw undyed wool for the majority of it. I was determined. After all, wool should depict wool!” Initially she made needle felted originals and some prints but as she evolved and shops became interested her work developed to providing high quality and affordable ranges of cards, prints, paperweights and more depicting Ireland’s most loved wildlife.
