I’ve got several announcements today. The first is that our shop here on The Felting and Fiber Studio is open for business. There are tutorials and e-books by Zed and I. My book, The Complete Photo Guide to Felting, is also available but it doesn’t make much sense to ship it overseas as it costs as much for shipping as it does for the book. I will be adding more tutorials as I get them completed. These are the original projects that were meant to go in the book but were not included. So I have more that will be on nuno felting and wet felting.
In case you don’t read my personal blog, this is another entry I made for Ann’s 2nd quarter scrap challenge. It is inspired by my recent trip to Hawaii.
The second announcement is that I have started working on my next online class which will be stenciling, stamping and playing with thickened dye on felt. I plan on having the class ready to go in the fall. I have been carving some sample stamps. This is the first one. I developed this stamp from a photograph I took behind our house several years ago.
And here is a second one that I used the idea from one of my sketches. I developed this design from a set of curtains.
This is the original sketch of the design.
The last announcement is to remind everyone that our Wet Felting for Beginners Online course is always available now. If you’re just finding us, this is a great class to learn wet felting. You can sign up here.
First up, the announcement of the winner of the free space in my upcoming Nuno Felting with Paper Fabric Lamination online class. There were 38 people who commented that wanted to be in the class. The random number generator chose number 13 who is Linda. Congratulations Linda! I will be sending you an e-mail with further information.
For the rest of you who commented and wanted to be in the class, you can sign up here. The last day to register and pay for the class is May 13 which is only two days from now. So go ahead and sign up, it’s going to be a fun class. Remember, you do need to have nuno felting and wet felting experience to take this class.
Also, there have been a few questions about when the Nuno Felting with Paper Fabric Lamination online class will be repeated. The plan is to complete all four modules and then repeat the entire 4 modules again next year. So it will be repeated.
The next announcement is to not forget that registration for the next Wet Felting for Beginners online class is open. Go here to register. If you know someone who wants to learn to felt, please pass the word to them. This is a very affordable class and is perfect for someone who has never felted before.
And I hate to do a post with no eye candy. So here is what I made on Friday with my local art group. We layered synthetic fabrics and then stitched them all together. The last step is using a soldering iron to burn out portions of the fabric.
Here’s a closer view so you can see the holes and the stitching a little better. I think I will put this on to some kind of background but haven’t decided yet how to finish it. What do you think? Would you add a color behind it?
