Felting in Sutton Coldfield

I had a wonderful fun filled evening with a group of Sutton Coldfield ladies at Sutton Coldfield Sailing Clubhouse, sharing how to make felt. We worked with a monochrome scheme using only white with shades of black to grey. This limited colour palette helped everyone to focus on pattern making, texture and design.

The white base layer of merino wool was complimented with a range of cotton fabrics and fibres including knitting yarns, linen, nepps, recycled plastic bottles and silk. The felting was helped along with a glass (or two) of wine & some treats to eat!  Plans for some of the finished peices include hand and matching stitching into the work and simply framing on a float mount. Congratulations everyone on your first try of Feltmaking and a big thank you for inviting me; you all created some beautiful felt.
