Felted Sample: Chunky Knit?

Felted merino wool and silk.

As I may have mentioned in another post, I have been taking felting courses online from one of my two favorite fiber artists in the world, Yekaterina Mokeyeva ( https://www.feuer-und-wasser.com/about ) This felted piece is my latest homework in her structure and surface texture class which is ongoing right now. I love this technique and what it produces! I have learned many new techniques from “Katia” and am so inspired by her work.

The colors and design of this sample were inspired by a photograph of rock strata on Pinterest.

If you are interested in felting, or are a fiber artist, you may enjoy taking one of her workshops. She travels all over the world teaching in person, and I am so grateful that she has also added online classes to her teaching schedule so I can attend!

Thank you so much Katia!

“Layers of Fluff!”

Here is the felted piece that seems to be lively and almost dancing.  I have since added some things (photo coming later in another post) but I loved this before piece as well so thought I would share.  Below is a slideshow of the details of “Layers of Fluff.”  This  piece is approximately 18″x16″.

“Layers of Fluff” was felted using merino wool, Jacob’s wool locks, and dyed silk hankies.

I will post the new look of “after the additions” soon and I am curious which people will say they like better.  I would appreciate your opinions.  Thanks!
