IMG_2272Getting ready for a Dungog by Design exhibition later this year, I played around with this piece of wood.  Silk and beads embellishments created this, hopefully it will put smiles on cat loving faces!

Approaching felt

July 28, 2017

Delving more & more into the tactile experience of creating felted pieces I travelled to Bendigo.  To see a Bendigo’s wool & sheep show, which is a major annual event.  It was all huge with sheep & wool judging, dog handling of sheep being displayed, and a wonderful retail area for anything wool.

My purchase of an Ashford blending board is out of its box onto my work table.  Thanks to Ashford NZ website their instructions are helping with technique.  This is just a beginning.
