Lorraine Cathey Fiberworks
Add to Trip

Growing up in an artistic family, it was only natural that craft artist Lorraine Cathey kept the tradition alive. Her venture into needle felting and wet felting came in 1998 when she retired and took a weeklong class at John C Campbell Folk School in Brasstown, North Carolina. The rest is history, she says. After continuing with more classes, Lorraine now teach others at the Folk School annually. She enjoys sharing her passion for fiber and felting and is proud that she was juried into the Southern Highland Craft Guild in 2014.

Lorraine finds inspiration in the beautiful North Carolina mountains. That love for the area’s beauty is echoed in her colorful felted landscapes. Using a variety of wool roving in different colors and textures, the works are reminiscent of rich paintings.

Her work as been exhibited in numerous galleries in the area and Florida, and shown at fine art and craft shows throughout the Southeast, winning several awards.

Lorraine’s studio is open by appointment only. Please email her to make arrangements.
