After some successes with plant dyeing and my recent purchases of whole sheep fleeces, I thought it is time I had a go at felting again.
I have tried wet felting before but never needle felting, I was inspire by some of the lovely work we saw at woolfest last week, also coincidentally Jesse has brought home an art research project for high school and she had chossen an artist who makes beautiful felt pictures...so no excuses not to have a go together.
We used some of the dyed samples Ive been making, a few bits of brought merino tops and some raw undyed bits with the lovely crimp still in the fleece....
The last one is Jesse's, I think it really lovely, she plans to add some embroidery details very soon, I hope her teachers are happy with it!
( the artist Jesse was asked to look at is Moy Mackay)
