Meet the artist behind the celebrity 'minis'.

Ellen Siegert is the artist and designer behind the online amigurumi phenomenon, Crazy Hippo Crochet.

The teenager, from Norfolk, creates crochet models of her favourite celebrities, from Taylor Swift to the cast of Downton Abbey.

Her unique crocheted 'minis' are on show on the ground floor of the Millennium Library throughout the Festival.

Ellen has an online following similar to some of the celebrities she immortalises in yarn!

She started crocheting characters from her favourite TV shows when she was 13, as a way of coping with ME, and now runs a flourishing online business.
