  • beach glass « a life of fibre – Angela Barrow
    right I did try a few beads as well but they weren t sufficiently translucent to sit happily alongside the glass Now I ll keep spraying daily with water until the florists wire has rusted to match the nails It s not love but I do quite like the finished item and at least perhaps it ll spur me on to try more Tags beach glass rust Posted in General 4 Comments Garden Art Thursday May 13th 2010 Increasingly I m moving to using and exhibiting my felt outdoors It just seems a natural progression to festoon the garden with as much felt work as the house has received This will inevitably lead to loss of colour in dyed wools but actually I don t mind this idea I m excited by the thought that my felt will change over time by becoming paler stretching or shrinking gathering moss changing shade when it gets wet perhaps even getting a little moth eaten To watch it change or not across the seasons will be interesting So when I found some blue tatty rope on the beach I just knew it had to go outdoors There s a little spot at the back of the house which is long and narrow and for which I wanted to make a felt hanging The best part about the rope was the loop at the top a ready made hanging mechanism Beach blue rope the hanging just had to be blue too I also like rust so I added a layer of tan merino to begin and allowed it to show at the edges slightly I covered the rope with three shades of turquoise and blue merino allowing it to break out and sit on top of the fibres in places On top I used a few wips of tan and rust merino ramie silk and bamboo fibres in tiny quantites for a little sheen and a teal crystal organza to create more texture and give a hint of shine It s not a great picture of the hanging but I thought you d like to see where it will sit It is south facing so if I leave it there I m expecting to see colour fading quite quickly Although I was very pleased with the hanging it just felt like it needed something more I wondered what I could add and remembered my ever growing stash of beach glass Excited I pulled out lots of lovely white it was once clear glass and sprinkled them on the felt It didn t work but when I replaced it with brown glass I knew I d hit upon the right thing It was also lucky to find amongst my threads one in turquoise which was quite twisted I ve used some scrappy looking knots to fasten the glass on and positioned it near the rope This has had the effect of making it look like it became trapped there naturally On a separate beach trip

    couldn t resist I think it would be a nice one to weave with as well Tags blue crochet green handmade Posted in General 1 Comment 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 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

    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 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

  • british wool weekend « a life of fibre – Angela Barrow
    is when we work in Merino but I did have a little home dyed Blue Faced Leicester and Swaledale which they eschewed in favour of the naturals Quite a few of the British breeds are how shall we say less soft than the merino which is most commonly worked with We re so used to feeling very soft wool that not everyone takes to some of these wools straight away whilst some love them I ve yet to find a British wool I don t like although I will admit there are quite a few which I most certainly would not want next to my skin There are so many other uses we can put them to though So first up we have a vessel in Black Jacob by Carol black in these wools is usually a very dark brown a vessel in Black Welsh Mountain by Belinda a lovely springy wool if you press this vessel flat it pops back up like one of those instant pop up tents and a garlic pot in Massam by Belinda I may pinch this idea Belinda The lovely brown is a Manx Loaghtan by Liz This is a rare breed by the way and such a divine colour In the centre is Lincoln Longwool also by Liz lovely art deco shape to it and it has some seacell decoration Sorry about the lighting on this but it was raining and the light was poor Both of these vessels are by Carol the first in white Shetland with recycled sari silk fibre decoration and the second lovely form in Massam fibres You can t see all the colours in the white one but it did look stunning with the coloured marbling This fabulous trio is by Judith From left to right Blue Faced Leicester Devon Massam I know Judith wasn t keen on the Devon whilst working it but was a little more won over by the time it was felted and this threesome just look so right together The final quirky and I do mean that as a compliment vessel is by Liz worked in Black Jacob with a milk protein decoration Judith also used milk protein on her Devon vessel but you can t see it in the photo Some of the fibres smell a little more sheepy than the highly processed coloured Merino but personally I like the smell and each fibre is so different to handle It s wonderful exploring British Wools and as a couple of you have been asking if I ll be running another one I m now planning a British Wool weekend on 1st and 2nd October Details to follow soon Tags british wool weekend wet felted Posted in past workshops 3 Comments British Wool Weekend Tuesday February 22nd 2011 There s a new show opening at the Harrogate Showground this year called British Wool Weekend promoting British wool and the farmers who produce it Here s the information I ve received about it We
