Miriam Carter

Dublin, NH

Exhibiting Member Since 2015

Traditional and contemporary wet feltmaking technique. Materials include fine wool and silk. Miriam Carter comes from a long line of family felters. Her great uncle brought the traditional trade with him to the United States when he moved here from Germany, and her father worked in a felt mill. Carter took up the handicraft more than 20 years ago when she was spending time with her dad as he awaited a heart transplant. "We decided to explore craft making together," she said. "I couldn't find a hat to fit my head, so my dad went off to create a felt body hat, I styled it and thought, 'Hey, we have a product.'"
