My name is Blanka Bakowicz and I am a feltmaker and designer from Poland. I run my own felting studio, BlanCraft. Its name is a combination of my name and the word handicraft.
I always loved to express myself in various art techniques. I attended lots of art classes, workshops and courses, just to fight with daily routine at first. But in 2009, I participated in felting classes and loved this technique! Especially, I enjoyed the fact that I was able to turn fibers into something entirely new. Since then, I was sure this was what I wanted to do.
Today I make my dream come true, sometimes feeling like a Don Quixote in a clash with large companies and mass production. What makes me go forward is hope that - from time to time - I help a few little dreams of my customers to come true as well.
