My Shop now has two new greetings cards designs celebrating the glory of Sweet Peas!

bluebirdwild is the creative business for Caroline Mann, Textile Artist & Creative Arts Practitioner working with and teaching a range of textile crafts such as mixed media, print, collage, felt making, rag rug making, embroidery and making objects and items from Vintage fabrics, wools, fibres and more!  

2017 has seen Caroline begin to work with water colours after a break of over 20 years painting flowers in particular, and Sarah Blackett-Ord's water colour workshops are a great source of help and inspiration.  Mandy Pattullo has also brought the 20th Century artist Winnifred Nicholson to Caroline's attention with Caroline creating a textile collage at Mandy's 'Winnifred' workshop in June 2017.

Some of this new and developing work by Caroline is shown below and is featured exclusively on
