About My Business:

 

Guest presenter for Create & Craft TV, award Winning and voted “Best of British” Chief Felt-trepreneur, Lisa Marie Olson’s love affair with creative arts started at school with needle work and textile arts. Lisa quickly realised that she had a natural flair and ability to create wonderful things with threads, fabric, ribbons, buttons and left over bits and bobs. After a short time Lisa began making things for family and friends adding finishing touches to a room such as a roman blind, customising bags and making unique accessories. Lisa’s interest in creative pastimes continued into adulthood where she was able to save money by making and customising not only her wardrobe but home too. Over the past 30 years Lisa has continued to develop her skills in all areas of creativity, from cleverly repairing worn trousers, creating decorative items for the home, up-cycling, paper crafting and felt-making. Lisa has acquired many industry standard accreditations and is an approved tutor by industry specialists. Lisa has travelled the UK as an experienced and published arts and crafts demonstrator for a leading arts and crafts supplier, spreading her message of creativity… promoting inclusion and confidence building across the UK. With a deep belief that anyone can achieve great things through creative arts and crafts, it is Lisa’s mission to promote the benefits that participation in creative play can offer not only to an individual or group but the wider community. Lisa has embarked on a life long journey of learning and continues to grow and develop her skills and share her knowledge with other like minded people so that others can also experience the magic of creativity. Now Lisa has achieved her lifel long ambition of doing what she loves everyday by specialising in the art of felt-making, felt making is the process of rubbing pure wool fleece (un-spun) with a little water and soap to create a cloth that is unwoven, in fact it is the only unwoven cloth known to human kind. It is a testament to Lisa's teaching skils that ensures the courses she runs frequently are booked well in advance. So why not book onto a course and experience the magic that Tigerlily Makes!
