Sonya St-Gelais - Felter maker
How long have you been a member of L'Empreinte coopérative?
I have been a member of L'Empreinte coopérative since July 2013
How would you describe your work as an artisan?
I am a multi-disciplinary artist who likes to play with colour and texture.
The work I present at L'Empreinte is mainly made of felt. From wearable art to decorative or utilitarian objects, I work with natural fibres and I put my heart into it!

As an artisan, what does it mean to you to be part of the Empreinte coopérative?
In addition to being a beautiful boutique, L'Empreinte is a place filled with human stories and creativity.
L'Empreinte is a showcase for the work of local artisans, both locally and internationally, and I am proud to be a part of it.
