Nuno Felting Party

My local art group just happened to plan on nuno felting with this month’s meeting which coordinated wonderfully with Ann’s 2nd Quarter challenge of using fabric and nuno felting as a surface design.

Paula had everything set up for us and we were ready to start nuno felting.

Louise was doing a combination of string, alpaca and cobweb style felt. Her second piece had a piece of fabric in it but I didn’t get a photo of that.

Paula used a fabric that was sold as “Halloween” fabric and applied wool on both sides.

Paula also made a second piece with cheese cloth.

Sally used a variety of different fabrics on her green piece.

Sally created a second piece too.

A bit of rolling action happened in the middle of the pieces above.

Here are my pieces. I forgot to take a photo of the layout but the left hand photo is laid out and wet down with the finished pieces on the right. I am planning on adding stitch to these. I actually made a total of 6 pieces by going back to Paula’s the next day. So  loads of felting is finished.

I will show you more when the stitching is added.

About ruthlane

When I discovered felting in 2007, I finally found the creative outlet for which I had been searching. I love that the versatility of fiber allows me to “play” with a wide variety of materials including wool, silk, fabrics, yarns and threads. Creating one of a kind fiber art pieces to share with the world fulfills my creative passion.

    A lot of successful experimentation there with nice results. I look forward to seeing your stitched pieces. Great color combos.

    Looks like a really fun day and interesting experiment. I’ll be very interested in seeing some of your other pieces and this one with the stitching when it’s done.

    Very interesting pieces. Seeing the photos just makes me wish I could have been there in person to ‘see’ how the different pieces were achieved.
    Echoing the other comments – I’m looking forward to seeing your other pieces (the two above look like landscapes in a setting sun) and when you’ve done your stitching.

    Looks like a very productive and fun day. Your landscape pieces are going to be great!

    It looks like it was a great day! That room is gorgeous and light. I have a couple of ‘hallowe’en’ fabrics I haven’t got around to trying, I’ll have to get them out.
