    by Tanya who was attracted by the shape of the leaf and has every intention of using this as a base for embroidery Tanya was the first to use a resist and you can see the inner part of the leaf stands proud from the background Ros s second piece is another piece of felt destined to be embellished It s in bright happy colours not that Ros knows where it will go as she doesn t have these colours in any rooms at home but the colours just called to her I think it was Tanya who suggested it would make a lovely table mat Tanya s second felt is based on a flower and again features 3D work It s a real shame I can t show it to you finished because I m sure it s going to be spectacular After making felt rolls to be added when the work is dry Tanya made more felt rolls which were attached during wet felting The curly bits are Teeswater curls and the orange just sings our against the blue I do hope Tanya remembers to send a photo when it s finished Anthea came with a theme in mind a Chattel house After making pre felt in pink house grey roof and green shutters we held a group discussion about the building I know you can t see it Anthea was very unhappy about how it looked it would have needed some later embellishment to help seat it in the picture and knowing herself well enough that it would never be finished the house was with group consensus removed However her addition of a figure on the shore was inspired Drawing further inspiration from Tanya s leaf resists were used under two of the palm tree leaves to allow them to hang free of the background You can just see coconuts underneath one of the leaves I should have taken a picture of the stripey pre felt Anthea intended to use for the house shutters as she swears she s going to make it into a courgette Tags past workshops picture Posted in past workshops No Comments Bag workshop Thursday March 14th 2013 The photos for this blog are courtesy of Lesley and Stephanie I know you re all now thinking that I forgot my camera yet again but honest I didn t This time it was the SD card which wouldn t work When I got home Hubby temporarily sorted it with the addition of some sellotape but I fear I need a new card So without more ado the reveal This time we were working in Jacob fibres for the main body of the bag with any colour being supplied by Merino or other embellishments Above you can see that Denise has added coloured wool nepps and curly kid Mohair Below Sylvia has added Mohair merino and some soyabean I think Pam has added coloured wool nepps curly kid mohair and soyabean fibres The nepps and

    the direction of the folds This is just fab I m loving it Still loving it but decided to add a few more decorations in the shape of felt balls I couldn t stop there either so I applied a small amount of glitter glue to the edges Sorry you can t see it on the photos It s not dry but it s already hanging on my wall Maybe a round one for Christmas next Tags felt handmade recycling Posted in Felting 6 Comments Recycling Tuesday November 8th 2011 Do you remember this I really wasn t happy with it and several people were kind enough to make suggestions on how I might improve it Well it then sat in my cupboard for 7 months Last week I mustered sufficient enthusiasm to look at it again and even to put a few stitches in it I then asked another friend what she thought and her idea was to chop it up and make it into something else Now I think she meant something else in which you d see the design but that doesn t seem to have been what I ve done This is going to be a project you can do at home with the kids or alone Felt won t fray so I began by cutting lots of squares And made them into these They re very rough discs They don t have to be perfect circles or be the same size this is why it s a good one to do with kids Next I folded them in half and then in half again and secured with a few stitches Now I have lots of these In my next post I ll show you what I made with them Don t throw your offcuts away save them for stuffing small Christmas tree decorations or put them in the compost No landfill here thanks Tags felt handmade recycling Posted in Felting No Comments Recycled jumpers Tuesday August 16th 2011 You have to go take a look at her Etsy site or facebook page Kat O Sullivan makes the most amazing coats from recycled jumpers and even has a tutorial for sale too Tags recycling Posted in General 2 Comments 2 down 4 to go Sunday June 20th 2010 It s been a very busy week as I ve been out and about working with the six schools in Skipton to produce felt wallhangings for display at Art in the Pen This has been my first opportunity all week to blog and I hope you like what you see First up is the work by year six children of St Stephen s Catholic School Culture is the theme to reflect that they have children from over ten countries in their school Each child produced a picture and we made the winning entry as the wallhanging The background has carded fibres and recycled sari silk fibres Next up is the work by year five and six children from

    thing Now we had to wait for the felt to be bone dry before we could snip off the bindings We all seemed to really like the shapes created by putting objects like marbles and pebbles into the work but I also liked the stitching which was ruched in creating extra texture Binding some of the spikey bits added further texture but these weren t my favourite parts It s a very sculptural piece of felt which my husband thinks is a weird thing but my teenage daughter thinks is cool Me I m very pleased with the outcome and can envisage using elements of this technique in other work I had a lovely day with Jenny experimenting and most of all just having the time to play around and think about future workshops Three more workshops are in the offing over the next few weeks I can t wait Tags 3D wet felt experimental vessel 3 Responses to Experimental Ali says April 20 2015 at 8 28 am OOh how exciting opens up a knobbly wealth of possibilities Ali x Tricia Mowat Slater says June 12 2015 at 2 45 pm At what stage do you remove the marbles etc etc angela says June 13 2015 at 8 48 am Right at the end Tricia Leave a Reply Click here to cancel reply Name required Mail will not be published required Website Subscribe to my blog Join my mailing list to receive latest workshop dates and felt news or My Flickr Photos Hints and Tips Tutorials Tutorial Felt cord making Tutorial 3D Pod Tutorial Nuno felt scarf Tutorial Trollen weaving Tutorial Seamless Felt Handbag Tutorial Seamless Felt Notebook Categories Book Review Curlew Diaries Featured Maker Felt United Felting General Metaphor past workshops Spinning tutorial Search blog Good stuff Andrea
