Since 2011, Crazy Orphelia started her unique little shop in the city centre of picturesque Amsterdam. She started making cute felted characters and teaching felting to students. Also drawing is one of her passions.

The Crazy Orphelia emporium is a creative space that’s also home to all kinds of Crazy characters, Custom Kachina Caricatures and other art made by hand in Amsterdam for sale.

We offer a variety of workshops. Do you have an interest in colorful artwork by felting or drawing? This is the place to be. Get silly and enjoy!
