05 Aug Nuno Felt
It is very interesting keeping tabs on the different searches people do to get to this blog and something that comes up time and time again is nuno felting. Obviously there is great interest in this technique so I am just going to post a picture of a piece I made recently for everyone to see. The silk fabric that I used was from the sari loom ends I had ordered from Essential Textile Art in Australia a little while ago and I must say that it was a pleasure to work with. I have been debating whether to add a few beads or embellishments as highlights but have not actually made my mind up yet as the end piece is beautiful just as it is! Sewing is one of my all time pet hates (even adding a few beads!) and I am really trying to get over myself on this issiue. Recently I joined several groups on Flickr and have just signed up to make a bag on ‘bag ladies swap’ , check out the discussions on this group and maybe some of you will want to join, if seems GREAT FUN!! sorry that this post is really short, I will be back in full swing next week as soon as the Irish Green Gathering is wrapped up.
