Chad Alice Hagen has two big loves in her life - bookmaking and textiles, especially the resist dyeing of hand felted and woven wool. She has been exploring resist dyeing and surface design on felt since 1979 and exploring the book structure since the turn of the century! Combining these two interests gave her the tools to begin her exploration of making books featuring textiles, handmade or rescued, as the covers.
She received her BA and MS degrees from University of Wisconsin - Madison and her MFA from Cranbrook Academy of Art. Her felt work has been on the covers of Surface DesignJournal, Shuttle, Spindle & Dyepot, and Fiberarts magazines.
She has written three books about feltmaking - Weekend Crafter: Feltmaking, Fabulous Felt Hats and with Jorie Johnson Fabulous Felted Scarves (all Lark Books). She is currently working on a book about resist dyeing on wool.
Chadalice has been teaching workshops for over 40 years in the US, Canada, Mexico, Europe, Australia, New Zealand and her current studio in West Asheville, North Carolina.
She sells her books and felt work through Etsy, the Southern Highland Craft Guild and various other craft shows.
