Felting

'Painting' with merino wool fibres can create quite unpredictable but very satisfying results. The fibres are laid out and hot water and soap is added. The piece of work is then rubbed and rolled causing the fibres to mat together. Shrinkage occurs and what began as several layers of fibres becomes an individual piece of felt art which can be then added to using a sewing machine, hand stitching or needle felting. 3D felted objects can also be made using the same basic technique.

I began working in this medium relatively recently and it is one that I particularly enjoy.
