Shirin Abdullaeva comes from Kyrgyzstan, a country on the silk road with a long tradition of nomadic use of felt for everyday items. In her childhood she fed silkworms with mulberyy leaves in her mother’s village and helped her father’s relatives in the mountains to make traditional felt rugs.
Shirin now lives in Scotland, and is creating unique handmade nuno-felted scarves in her own style using Central Asian silk and Scottish wools, assisted by her 5- and 2-year old sons.
Shirin also sings and plays various instruments.”
Shirin has been taking part in quite a few projects and Arts Fests in Penicuik with her felt craft and musical skills and charme. We are so pleased to have her back. A wonderful addition to Penfest 2015, and opportunity for you![/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/1″][vc_separator type=”normal” position=”center” circle_position=”circle_center”][vc_row_inner][vc_column_inner width=”1/3″][vc_facebook type=”standard”][/vc_column_inner][vc_column_inner width=”1/3″][vc_tweetmeme type=”horizontal”][/vc_column_inner][vc_column_inner width=”1/3″][vc_googleplus annotation=”inline”][/vc_column_inner][/vc_row_inner][/vc_column][/vc_row]
