The Country Chick Behind Country Chicks Creations

Peta Korb is an award-winning textile artist with a diverse artistic background.

Peta started her textile journey as a theatrical costume designer and special effects makeup artist. With credits including puppet making, world premiere stage productions, ballets, operas, and a world tour of the Moscow Circus. When not creating with her own hands, Peta has lectured in costume design and been a judge for the Australian Rock Eisteddfod Challenge.

Using wool fibres as a medium, Peta employs traditional wet and needle felting techniques alongside techniques from other crafts to make her one of a kind creations. She has received several awards for her 3D sculptures and wearable creations, including at the Perth Royal Show and the Sydney Royal Easter Show.
