Artist’s Profile During her degree in Contemporary Crafts at Falmouth University, Sophie Buckley found that as well as enjoying the process of creating, she also enjoyed sharing creative skills with others. After completing a course in workshop facilitation she moved to the Gloucestershire area where she met local creative Steffi Stern, and they have worked together ever since, writing the book Making Needle Felted Animals together which came out in 2015, and have created a business based around the book called The Makerss, through which they are able to share with others their enthusiasm for making, love of natural materials, and creative skills.
