Felt Design processes for a Welsh Exhibition – Sampling

  • Wetting out felt fibres
    Felt fibres with Gotland prefelt in hot colours

Design isn’t something you should be afraid of.  Play with the colours in blocks, add prefelt cut out shapes and then with fine layers paint over the top to ensure the layers blend together.  Wet out, dry and leave to one side.  Take photographs and look at a few days later.  You could make another prefelt, cut that up and add it, add wool fibres, silk fibres – anything as long as you “glue” the additions in place with fine wisps of fleece.

Good design is about time, thinking, planning, sampling and calm making.  There can be a number of stages.  This is my first day – lets see what develops!
