Felting Session

I was busy today making samples for a felting class and working on the 1st quarter challenge making a piece inspired by Jackson Pollock.

MINOLTA DIGITAL CAMERAThe felting class will be for high school students at an “art retreat” and I’m going to teach them to make a cell phone case. The theme is “Intergalactic Disco Carnival”. So I thought a “cosmic cell phone case” would be the perfect class. This photo is a little dark but you get the idea.

MINOLTA DIGITAL CAMERAI also made this one with cheesecloth on one side. This is some of the cheesecloth that I recently dyed. I sent pieces to Zed, Ann and Lyn and they are going to play with it to. I just used a tiny piece – I have lots more to try.

MINOLTA DIGITAL CAMERAAnd I did finish my 1st quarter challenge piece but you’ll have to wait to see the final photo. I’ll post about it on the Felting and Fiber Studio site next week. This is the pile of pre-felt that I used to make it. I also worked on my ice flower piece but didn’t have any photos because it got to dark. I’ve gotten all the flowers and leaves sewn down. Now I need to sew it on to the background fabric and attach the “twiggy bits”. I haven’t ordered the stretcher bars yet. Got to get that done.

    • Thanks Teri – I’m sure the angelina would add to it but somehow I’m not a sparkly kind of girl. Plus I decided since I don’t have much time for this class that I can’t give the kids too many choices. So I couldn’t add extra fibers to the sample if they won’t be able to use those fibers. For first time felters, I think angelina is a bit tough to get it stuck down since it’s such a large fiber.

Thanks for stopping by. I'd love to hear your comments so please let me know what you think.
