Niki Collier’s practice evolves around traditional textile crafts often blended with innovative approaches in constructing fabric and stories.
She develops her work in three strands: exhibition work, slow fashion collections & teaching.
Niki Collier’s exhibition work is a mission to breach the boundaries between science and art in pieces which start a conversation on balance resilience and empowerment. Special interest are experiences and constructs that unite us and welcome revisiting our own understanding of us and them.
The felt collections offering is on contemporary hand made felt pieces with strong design and flawless execution. Each creation is made in luxury natural materials with a dedication to origin and heritage. The suits include hats, scarves and gloves as well as wraps and coats in 6 colourways. Niki loves nothing more than to work on bespoke commissions. Just book an appointment to discuss.
Creating for Niki is two goodnesses in one: telling stories and solving problems. In that niki&niki felting tools have become part of the core of her work and have allowed her to share her passion for felting and felting tools with the rest of the felt folk as a true artist- supporting and elevating others. The love for creativity and felting has opened up many doors for Niki Collier. She has taught in Facebook, Etsy, NCAD and many events and institutions who love nurturing skills and ideas through craft. Niki Collier is a qualified teacher with MA in Education and is on the Education Panel with DCCoI.
