Calling all felters, spinners, weavers, knitters, crocheters, sewists and any other fibre crafters!
This challenge has a floral theme and the aim is to have some fun making something inspired by flowers, grasses, seed-pods, seeds or leaves etc – realistic or imaginary. You can make just a sample or a finished piece, and it can be for artistic or practical purposes.
We’ve dug back through our photos for a few of our ‘floral’ efforts depicted in various fibre mediums:
Needle felted corsage with beads – brooch back stitched to reverse.
Holly leaves stitched and cut from pieces of colourful handmade felt.
Leaves cut from handmade silk paper then felted into merino fibres.
