    bag which wasn t quite as planned but was a great first attempt at this style It s made entirely in Blue Faced Leicester wool Cheree s Black Welsh Mountain handbag with bright red Blue Faced Leicester interior The plan is to decorate it further with crocheted flowers This unusual sculpture is from Alex and it s based on a seed pod acquired on her travels So sorry the photo isn t better but it s the only one I have Alex made it using Black Welsh Mountain and plans to use french knot stitches to give it a textured exterior This fun sheep was made by Judith using Swaledale Cheviot and Blue Faced Leicester wools It s going to get legs and an even shaggier coat I can t wait to see the photos Using the same shape as Cheree Judith made this lovely bird for a very special purpose to keep her eggs in I ve been promised pictures of it finished with more feathers around the tail end Over the weekend we had two clear winners on the wool tops front Swaledale and Black Welsh Mountain Both are coarser wools from hill sheep but it goes to show that they felt very well and can even earn places as favourites Go on give British wools a try you may surprise yourself Tags 3D wet felt british wool handmade past workshops Posted in past workshops 6 Comments Phew Wednesday September 28th 2011 Thought I d never get this finished and dried to show you but here is my table runner at last Remember it s all British wool I didn t use the Masham in the end but I did use BFL Shetland Cheviot Jacob Manx and Black Welsh Mountain I ve decided to call it Cherry Topped Now to do a matching item watch this space but please don t hold your breath as it may take a while Tags BFL british wool table runner wet felted Posted in Felting 2 Comments 3D workshops Friday September 23rd 2011 Next weekend I have two days of 3D workshops in which you can choose to make several smaller items or one larger item per day As the technique for 3D is very similar on all items I can offer you the choice of creating bags vases or pods and other abstract 3D structures There will be fifteen different British fibres to work with try one or try them all Most are natural undyed colours but there will be some dyed Blue Faced Leicester and Swaledale to choose from Choose to book one day or book both If you book two days you can make different items on each day or work on one extra large one Tags british wool workshops Posted in Felting No Comments Moving on Tuesday September 20th 2011 Progress on my table runner hasn t been quite as rapid as I would like but it is definitely moving on All the pieces are pre felted and

    18 2011 at 9 00 am My honest opinion The second transformation and the final ta da guise are my favourite in that order how about sea glass or marbles in the holes not sure of your dimensions xx Elizabeth says May 18 2011 at 4 44 pm I like the final rendition best It looks finished However if you aren t happy yet you could felt a lid for it or sew trim or buttons or beads around the top edge Or better yet make a piece of felt in the same colors and cut it sew it on in a stylized flower or bow Or sew contrasting felt inside the rim for a bit of pop Angela says May 18 2011 at 10 09 pm Wow thanks Kate and Elizabeth so many ideas Not sure what I ll do yet Fiona says May 18 2011 at 11 01 pm I have to say I like it The idea of putting something in the holes is interesting though I also like the version in the second picture as well Angela says May 19 2011 at 6 47 am It is a little pot but I do have some very small pieces of beach glass so perhaps I should give it a try Patrizia says January 17 2012 at 1 23 pm I have no words beautiful pat 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

    you All the pictures were created using Merino wool fibre and a variety of techniques for laying out This careful study is by Barbara who has a love of birch trees I thought you might like to see what was used for inspiration so have included the source material on this one This pretty dynamic flower is by Sandra and was a favourite with my daughter It s amazing how a camera transforms them from pieces of wet felt into pictures A second picture by Barbara and created in a very different manner to the first Had I had any available I m sure Barbara would have created the first picture using tweezers but this was done in a looser more fluid manner and a shorter time but is no less lovely This evocative scene is by Ruth The detailed tree gives structure but the background and leaves are in an impressionistic style This was Mich s second picture but is the one I choose to show as it s so very different in style to the others It s interesting to see how Mich interpreted the postcard and just how successful it s been Everyone created beautiful work and my sincere apologies to Pauline as due to my blurred photos I haven t been able to show any of her work My thanks to Chris for her assistance in tidying and sorting the wool in her free moments Thank you all ladies I m inspired to go and have a play Tags 2D merino pictures Posted in past workshops 1 Comment Little stripey book Friday July 13th 2012 This is the handmade item that I included in my op swap I really like reusing and recycling items so I began this by collecting al the little odds and ends of purple grey and black fibres that were too small or slightly felted to be used in other projects After hand carding they made the perfect background I used grey black and plum for the main background then laid on strips of purple fibres to create a striped effect On top of this I added stripes of single crochet To this I added wobbly lines of running stitch using a purple and multi coloured metallic thread and three recycled buttons I love the hint of sparkle from the thread which I ve also used to blanket stitch the edge The crochet has felted in well and I like the little touch of blue that it adds I m not usually a stripe fan but this little book has found a place in my affections Strange how that happens Tags merino notebook wet felted Posted in Felting No Comments Friday felt Sunday October 2nd 2011 A small select group met at my house on Friday for a smidgen of felt making We d not met before but we had a great day together I know I had a ball and felt energised by the session Claire had never made flet before

  • wet felted « a life of fibre – Angela Barrow
    ve been so busy making items for exhibition and keeping some under wraps that I haven t yet had chance to show you everything I ve made It s interesting as I set out to do some local items for the Ilkley Art Trail and interpreted that as landscapes I did make a couple which I ve already shown you before I realised I was forcing it and started to really think about how I could interpret local in a way that made sense to me What I really like is partial rather than whole lanscapes As I d used quite bright almost spring like greens I felt the tree needed leaves of some description I like the little curls and the hint of blue purple at the bottom gives the impression of bluebells Earlier in September we explored on the Cow Calf rocks whilst waiting for the sun to set Our daughter is taking a photography GCSE and the homework was to take a local scene she chose a sunset and the view from the rocks over to the west gives great sunsets Whilst clambering around I noticed the amount of graffiti up there and that inspired this next piece As this is to sell I made the actual graffiti quite generic It would be good to try a few colour experiments with this idea but I approach it with trepidation Tags landscape cow and calf wet felted Posted in Felting No Comments Not quite what I intended Saturday August 4th 2012 I m trying to find time to make a few items for the exhibition in October and one of my first thoughts was around flames So off I set to make a book cover with this idea in mind The idea was that the flames would wrap around the spine and lick from left to right across the front The background is Hebridean fibres and the locks are hand dyed Teeswater Once I d laid it out and felted it I wasn t happy with how it looked on the book and it seemed a waste so I changed my mind and have kept it as a picture After some debate over whether or not to add some stitch I took the plunge I ve included about 5 stitches in total and finished it off with seed beads This really works for me as a picture with the beads giving the impression of sparks I ve decided to call it Flame Garden and all that remains now is for me to make a book cover Tags hebridean wet felted wool Posted in Felting No Comments There s still time Saturday July 28th 2012 If you d like to make a cushion to be donated to an Olympic athlete there is still time Woolsack are still receiving requests from athletes for cushions and we have until 22nd August to get out completed cushions to Woolsack This means they ll still be in time for the paralympic athletes I

    back The central pleat runs all the way from the tip of the flap down and round to the front in one continuous line The side pleats run from the front section of the central pleat to the back like ribs I am so very pleased with this bag it s turned out just as I envisioned it in my head That s where I do most of my designing in my head in the early hours of the morning before the chatter and hustle of the day invades To fasten the flap I was considering a leaf shaped button but friends advised against it and they were right it doesn t need anything else This bag has been with me to the last couple of pleated bag workshops that I ran and I m so pleased that it s inspired others to make their own unique versions This workshop will run again on Saturday 12th March in Otley West Yorkshire further details and booking here To work this way and create something that is scupltural beautiful and practical has got me musing on further shapes and ways to develop this technique so I m really looking forward to some spare time over Christmas to have a play Tags leaf pleated bag Posted in Felting 2 Comments Nuno wrap Wednesday December 2nd 2015 Finally I found some time this morning to retrieve my photos from the camera card only to have to spend 10 minutes trying to feed it into the reader However at long last I can show you the wrap which is one of the samples for the workshop this coming Saturday It began as a piece of devore I used half the width of the fabric and a 2m length Before laying out I made a piece of silk covered Merino prefelt which I then cut into small leaf shapes The fabric was laid upside down and covered with two very fine layers of Merino which I then extended off the edge of the fabric to form a frill On top of that I laid some more silk and the leaves You can see it s a goodly size when finished and thanks to the devore it feels so warm and luxurious Such a grogeous wrap should surely have it s own flower corsage I m very pleased with it and I even like the neutral colour not like me at all You know I couldn t leave it there and so I have made a more colourful turquoise and black version which I promise to show as soon as I have daylight for the photos Sadly it will be next week before the opportunity arises as it s still showtime across at Adelaide Walker Perhaps I ll see some of you at the Country Living Christmas Show in Harrogate it runs from tomorrow 3rd December to Sunday 6th Tags nuno wrap Posted in Felting No Comments Showtime Monday November 30th 2015 It s that mad time
