Melissa Cole is an innovative natural fibre textile artist based in Bristol. Her designs harness haptic and biophilic elements inspired by the beauty of nature and naturally occurring geometric shapes, bringing nature indoors and enhancing emotional wellbeing with beautiful, novel, and practical pieces.
Working on a commission basis, Melissa specialises in interior acoustic installations and furniture pieces to enrich calming interiors.
Melissa has taken the traditional technique of wet felting in thrilling new directions and continues to shape and blend locally sourced and reclaimed wool materials. Her work has a strong sustainable ethos as all wool is locally sourced with most of it straight from farms in the southwest.
