About your tutor Petra Hilsen:  I was always interested in textiles. First watching my grandmother who was a talented seamstress making our clothes and my mother knitting socks and vests for us. Later I dabbled myself making clothes for my dolls and enrolled in a dress making course. During Uni I took up spinning, weaving and dying of wool. Wool became my favourite medium. I am now working as a feltmaker and workshop facilitator.
