These three greetings card designs each feature an artwork from The Wish Gatherers, one of a series of four seasonal stories based around British folklore.
Karin Celestine lives in a small house in Monmouth Wales. In their garden is a shed and in the shed is another world. The world of Celestine and the Hare. It is a place where kindness, mischief and beauty help people smile. Karin is an artist and author, who creates needle felted animals of charm and character, including the stars of their own delightful stop-motion animations and their series of children’s books published by Graffeg. Karin's joy in the natural world is also reflected in their sculptural copper pieces which complement their feltwork. Karin runs popular needle felting workshops, inspiring others to find their creative spirit and a membership club called the Tribe of Celestiner Chokliteers where kindness and mischief are the order of the day.
