Hi, I’m Zed and I live in North West England, in the UK
I’ve been felting for about 3 years and love trying out different fibres and incorporating them into felt to achieve unique effects. I also love trying out different wool breeds and other animal fibres to create texture and add interest to felt.
Felting 3, 2, 1
Q-3 Three types of fibre you can’t live without!
The two fibres I use the most are Merino wool and silk, so I’d have to include them. I don’t know which to choose for the third, I have a different favourite each week, this week it’s nylon 🙂
Q-2 Two tools you use all the time!
This is a hard one too. I think I’d find it very hard to make felt the way I like to without netting, my rubber mat and wooden dowel.
Q-1 One fibre art technique you love the most!
Definitely wet felting, it still fascinates me that I can add some soapy water and some agitation to a pile of fluffy fibres and have a unique piece of strong fabric half an hour later.
I’m really looking forward to working with Karen, Ruth and Ann and sharing our love and knowledge of felting with lots of friends across the world 🙂
