Steffi Stern and Sophie Buckley

Sophie Buckley is a crochet and needle-felt artist working in the Cotswolds.

She studied Contemporary Crafts at Falmouth University, having grown up in a creative family. She says ‘I was knitting, crocheting, clay modelling, felting, painting, drawing and writing stories from a young age’.

Sophie’s work is beautifully sculptural and organic, inspired by natural forms. She also runs popular workshops in Gloucestershire. Sophie lives in Nailsworth with her partner and a recently rescued Romanian lurcher.
