  • 3D. wet felt « a life of fibre – Angela Barrow
    vase Posted in past workshops No Comments The Dying of the Sun Saturday October 6th 2012 This is the final piece I submitted for the exhibition and probably the one I like the most Inspired by the title I thought I d make a sun and show it from red hot through to dying ember colours with the whole thing made from flowers When I thought I had enough I laid them out in a circular shape but it really wasn t working for me Not enough flowers too small To be truly spectacular in a circular shape I decided it needed to be far larger would need more flowers and that I would run out of time I still liked the idea so I wondered if it would work in another shape A rummage in the garage found me these two pieces of used wood I chose to work with the longer narrower piece and set to with scrbbing brush and water to clean it up I didn t see how I could use a single hook mechanism to hang it as unless it was dead centre the finished piece wouldn t hang straight I solved it by using 2 D rings with wire between them so that it could find it s own centre Best way to attach the flowers Hot glue gun I began with the hot colours at the top I did actually work it with the wood vertical gainst the wall This is how it will be seen when hung and I didn t want to end up with any gaps by working on it flat Going well colours blending into each other quite well Still going well Nearly there Blast ran out of flowers At this point work on assembly stopped whilst I made more flowers In total I made and attached 50 flowers Finished The whole family love this piece and I m hoping that it will come back home after the exhibition I know I could make another one for me but it wouldn t be the same and where would I find the time I reckon this has taken something like 15 hours to make I thought you d like a couple of close ups of the colours used I ve used reds oranges yellows pinks purples blues greys browns and blacks A lot of blending and carding I ll leave you with my favourite picture I m one contented felt maker Tags 3D wet felt exhibition flowers Posted in Felting 3 Comments Update on Swaledale pots Sunday June 17th 2012 You may recall I liked the blue one but not the pink one Then I saw lovely mohair yarn in my stash and decided to give the pink one another chance So after going stitch mad here it is re felted and finished I liked it so much I just had to have a go on the blue one too I m much happier now Tags 3D wet felt swaledale

    used in my felt At the end of the day this is what they looked like The first image is of my felt and look I d made a 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 Posted in Felting 3 Comments 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 Graham Arlene s felt Attic 24 Cash en Els Clasheen Felt Alive Feuer und Wasser Fiona Duthie Foxglove Felts I live I love I craft I am me Irit Dulman LoveFibre Rabenfilz Renata Felt Studiofelter Tanglewood Thicket Terrie Kwong Threadborne Vilt a la

  • Blue Faced Leicester « a life of fibre – Angela Barrow
    good reason for that it s called life I m sure some of you will be familiar with it You get up your day is planned and it starts to fall apart almost immediately and never recovers that day or the next But at last I can show you a piece of felt which I made two weeks ago and have finally found opportunity to photograph This is all part of my move towards working more with British wool fibres The inner two layers of the vessel are hand dyed Blue Faced Leicester and the outer two layers are Wensleydale Wensleydale is a gorgeous rich cream colour long staple and a great lustre As a coarser wool it s slower to felt than some but I actually like the texture of some of these wools and combining them with easier to felt fibres like Blue Faced Leicester really helps to speed it up The eagle eyed amongst you may also have spotted that I ve added an extra fibre to the outside it s milk protein fibre which adds more lustre Wish I d put a little more on really but it looks better in the flesh than on the photo I m not overly fond of the pink fibres I dyed but they do work very well to give a bright splash of colour to the interior and it contrasts well with the subtle blush colour seen from the outside As the fibres have felted the bright pink has shown through the Wensleydale to give subtle colouration I designed it with flowers for the exterior and I wanted those to be subtle too and not have bright pink showing I made a Blue Faced Leicester sandwich pre felt i e Wensleydale fibres then Blue Faced Leicester then more Wensleydale and some milk protein It s given me the same colour in the flowers and I m very pleased with them I hand stitched the flowers on after felting and there are baby pink seed beads in the centres Tags 3D Blue Faced Leicester wensleydale wet felted Posted in Felting 4 Comments Pod 2 part two Saturday May 14th 2011 I m loving the texture on this pod but I m not entirely happy with it Here it is drying When I finished felting all the tails were sticking straight out like spikes and it looked quite ridiculous so I pinned each of the tails down to allow them to dry in more of a curl shape It seems to have worked too You can see all the lustrous yarn felted into the inside but overall I am disappointed I m not sure if I need to change the three circular openings and I definitely want to put something shiny inside the pod All suggestions for this very welcome But I m going to leave you with a picture of some fabulous texture Tags Blue Faced Leicester merino pod teeswater Posted in Felting 4 Comments Pod 2 part one Friday

  • handmade « a life of fibre – Angela Barrow
    I laid Merino Silk blend fibres along the edge and along the length of the scarf in collections of circles some within others I wanted to continue off the end of the fabric so that it didn t finish with a straight edge Continuing with the circle theme I laid it out then put a second layer of bubble wrap over the top then flipped it over so I could add more circles on the reverse Once the fibres were through the fabric I heated it all up and began throwing until I achieved this It s very summery The original idea was to do this in red white and blue so it d be Jubilee colours without being a flag This didn t work for me and I have to say I m very pleased with the colours used My daughter thinks it looks like sea foam especially along the edge Do you agree What would you name it Tags handmade nuno scarf Posted in Felting 6 Comments Sssh it s a present Friday March 30th 2012 I think I m safe to share this here with you as the intended recipients aren t known to be great surfers As many of you may be aware Ian and Margaret have decided to retire from Adelaide Walker next month and I wanted to give them a small present to mark the occasion Obviously it needs to include fibres so I began with Blue Faced Leicester Not having any oatmeal colour at home I blended some myself using black brown and white This is now made up into a pre felt but I still need to put a picture onto it and this is what I ve chosen to do I have a plan for putting the sheep onto the felt I just hope it works and will show you how it comes along in the next post Tags handmade wet felted Posted in Felting past workshops 5 Comments Stitched in felt workshop Friday March 23rd 2012 It was one of my favourite workshops yesterday as we combined felt making with a few simple stitches We began by stitching into the fabric before we then laid out the fibres It s always interesting to see what colours people use In addition to fabrics silk and crab fibres rovings yarn and neps were added for more interest and texture Then began the rubbing and rolling We stopped at the pre felt stage and added more stitches and then again at the end You could hear a pin drop at this stage as everyone is concentrating so hard Not that the stitching is difficult you don t need to know a lot of stitches one of the most effective is a simple running stitch First book cover up is Liz s This isn t a set of colours that I d normally use but I just love the subtlety We used muslin silk chiffon silk and crystal organza fabrics Fabulous striking purples blues

  • silk chiffon « a life of fibre – Angela Barrow
    thank you to those who did And the reason snow I ve never had a problem with snow affecting workshops pre Christmas before but although there wasn t more than an inch where I live it wasn t so for everyone Given how cold they re forecasting the weather to be this week it seems scarves and fingerless mittens were the right things to be making well timed indeed The scarves are long enough to be tied around the neck but you can see the blue one had a slit cut into it to form a hole which allows the scarf to be fastened by threading through itself We used cotton muslin and merino fibres and finished with silk fibre decoration If you can t see the silk it s because it tends not to shine whilst still wet The mittens are silk chiffon with merino wool and silk decoration With the muslin you get a larger texture than with the silk chiffon I thought it would be useful for people to work with two fabrics to understand the different effects that using different fabrics gives to nuno felt Didn t they do well Tags cotton muslin felt mittens nuno scarf silk chiffon workshop Posted in past workshops 4 Comments New design Saturday July 10th 2010 My friend Kate was naughty recently when she kept her birthday secret but I decided to make her a belated birthday present anyway Kate is a keen and talented gardener and after seeing photos of the garden on her blog I decided to use that for my inspiration I thought it was also an opportunity to try out a new design idea for a neck warmer or short scarf I carded together yellow blue and green fibres which I laid out over white silk chiffon Between the silk chiffon and the fibres I trapped a number of flowers The flowers are the recycling element which I know Kate will apprecate as they came from an old net curtain I spent hours one weekend to bewildered looks from Hubby cutting out all the flowers before I threw the remainder away as it was damaged The scarf is floral on one side and coloured on the other I was hoping Kate would be pleased with her pressie but I needn t have worried for she seemed delighted when I handed it over I m now left wondering whether to make more in this style The floral theme with the recycling element appeals to me but I m not sure if it would be everyones cup of tea Thoughts Tags blue floral green handmade nuno scarf silk chiffon yellow Posted in Felting 4 Comments Scarves galore Tuesday December 8th 2009 Occasionally I run felt making workshops for Sedbergh Community Development Council up in Kirby Lonsdale The pictures below are from the lattice scarf workshop I think they all look lovely and wearable I also ran a felt for Christmas workshop but for some strange reason didn t
