Felt Workshop

In October I went to a great Wet Felt workshop in Milton Keynes. I had never attempted wet felting before & really enjoyed it. I was amazed by how quickly you could produce dramatic results. I managed to make three pieces & even learn to incorporate a bit of needle felting into one of the pieces.

My first attempt... was this a cute sheep! The majority is merino, with some wool strands added in wet felting process. I added some extra silk top (to add bulk to the sheep) and red centres of the flowers by needle felting.
