Thank you Eileen. You do have to make a resist for each shape - unless they’re very similar - so it probably is more complicated than felting directly onto the glass. But the measuring and calculating shrinkage is pretty straightforward and gets even easier with practice. Have a great trip to Florida.
Everyone seemed to go home happy (if a little tired - not least of all me!) and gave very positive feedback. Today I’ve just got to go back and tidy everything back into my small studio as the building closes at 4pm on Sundays so I couldn’t do it yesterday.
I can’t see some of the text I wrote - maybe behind the picture? - which explained that yesterday I’d run a wet felting for beginners workshop. Lots of learning, great experimentation and lovely varied pieces of felt.
I am behind on my daily doses. Saturday I went to a friends for some spinning and chilly supper with a group of other ladies. that was very nice and I spun up some silk hankies just to give it a try. It is quite easy and I ended up with some fine silk yarn. Tonight is one of our guild socials. I haven't decided if I will spin or felt. or spin for my felt landscape. I need some wire in the picture. I am going to see if I have a black silk hanky or maybe grey that I could spin into fence wire. I may have to take both my spinning and my felting. Winter really does drain my energy. It makes it very hard to pick things up and get on with it. I am glad I have the weekly meetings and the blog to motivate me to get going.
