Lore Laporte is a freelance graphic designer. Lore is very passionate about wool and needle felting. After the birth of her daughter Jeanne in 2015, she started making woolen sculptures of animals.
“As a graphic designer, I spend a lot of time behind a screen. After hours, I just really need to do something with my hands. Needle felting for hours, finding the right shape and working towards that perfect penguin or panther has a meditative effect on me somehow.” Her husband named the project Eddie Wollie and it didn’t take long before Eddie Wollie grew a fan base.
As a response to the recent covid-19 measures, Lore even made a woollen mask, a sculpture of virologist Marc Van Ranst as well as a woollen toilet roll. Follow Eddie Wollie on Instagram to discover all Lore’s creations!
