About the author of the tutorial
Katerina Korshun
Katerina lives in Italy. Felting is both a job and a hobby for her, as Katerina is a professional fashion designer.
Katerina has been engaged in felting since 2009.

First thing she made from felt was a flower that looked like a tiger lily. She was mesmerized by wool and felt. Then Katerina realized that she had found her way.

"I started to study felting: techniques and tricks. 11 years ago, the art of felting was not that much popular and any information was worth its weight in gold. I started with the simplest things."

Soon Katerina mastered scarves, took part in several art exhibitions and started teaching.
