Yesterday I went to a workshop at the Peninsula Arts Society. The workshop was called Fast and Furious Felting and the tutor was Tina Whitely.
I was not sure if I wanted to attend because I already do a bit of needlefelting and feel quite comfortable with the techniques and of course life is busy.
After giving it a lot of thought I decided it would be good to spend some time with other like minded people so I went.
Tina is an accomplished textile artist and does amazing things with felt. I learnt lots of new things and came away inspired. The pic shows some needlefelting I did while I was there: building up the background is slow work and so I did some more last night. As well as wool and silk rovings I have used some pink and yellow chiffon which I just cut up roughly. This will be a slow building project I think.
