Category Archives: Felting
The 5 span stone bridge at Pakenham is on one of the routes that I can take to get to my cottage. This needle felted landscape was done from a photograph I took last summer and was intended to be in a show entitled Canadian Landmarks. The show was in November and I have now just finished the piece.
Some red roving had been staring at me for days, just asking to be needle felted into a piece.
I learned the technique of making the metal pieces from pop cans in a Hilary Rice workshop.
A few weeks ago I posted a watercolour of a red fox and said that I might do it in felt.
Well I did and here’s the result.
Using the watercolour as a guide certainly helped the process.
Finished 2 small pieces this week for Fibre Fling 5. One is done in cool colours, the other in warm.
Both are needle felted.
I am enjoying playing with colour and texture.
Here is my latest felted piece. It will be mounted on a painted canvas. I haven’t yet decided which colour or colours I’m going to paint it. I have fooled around in Photoshop and have come up with several possible versions.
Which one do you like best?
The house isn’t that old. It’s just that my friends, Margo and Pat have bought a new one. I felted them a reminder of their former house.
