Nuno Felting Workshop

Over the last Weekend I did another workshop with Fiona Wright who is a fabulous Australian Feltmaker.
Here are some of my samples----The first one has a cotton base with the wool fibres laid on to it and a crappy scarfe over the top --I was really please with this sample.
It measures 23cm square.



This is the crappy scarfe ...................
This piece is 19cm square and has a cotton base with various shades of mauve wool layered over it and another scarfe this time silk georgette laid on top--the piece started out 40cm square in the beginning.

This is what the scarfe looked like in the beginning.



This is my Autumn piece and it measures 28cm x 21 cm.
I used a piece of rusted fabric as the base then layered autumn tones of wool on top then placed a piece of hand dyed silk organza over it.
I really like this piece and will embellish it with stitches.



And this is the reverse side which would be just as nice as the front as a stand alone piece.
It will be interesting to see what it looks like after I have stitched the other side.





More to follow.
