About the tutor
Lorna is the founder of Toots Design, an author, illustrator and animator. She creates stories which delight in the magic of the everyday and which provide comfort to the trickier parts of life – grief and mental health challenges. In 2020 Lorna taught herself to needlefelt so that she could bring to life one of her most loved stories – Mr Bear’s Christmas. Creating all of the characters and set from wool, she animated this short story and has gone on to start work on a second film – Mr Bear’s Day Out.
