Celestine and the Hare
Karin Celestine lives in a small house in Monmouth, Wales.
  In her garden there is a shed and in that 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 her own delightful stop-motion animations and her series of children’s books published with Graffeg. 
Her  joy in the world of nature is also reflected in her sculptural copper pieces which complement her feltwork.
Karin  runs popular needle felting workshops, inspiring others to find their creative spirit. 
Here is a world where weasels dance, bears read stories to each other 
and  water voles have allotment sheds.
The Circus Mice pass through in the Summer, and the Lightbringers in the Winter.
Some sail here on copper boats with glistening tales from the Lake of Dreams or from the stories whispered in the quiet Moon Boats reflecting the cycle of the seasons.  Some find their way here following an acorn pendant shining the way.
Whichever route you found us by, be it choklit crumbs, books of kindness or copper beauty,
All are most very welcome.
Due to the Corona Virus, I will be temporarily closing sections of my shop for a few weeks.
