the final print






it took some time sitting, cutting away... but at last a print from the Kerstin Gavler textile design. The original full design I have hand painted with water-colour. This design by Gavler has inspired some many other images that I'm now working on.

felt making






This was made some time ago but I took these photos recently as I'm updating my portfolio and wanted to include this. It is felted from natural, un-dyed fleece and the white threads are silk that was incorporated right at the end. I'm planning on doing some felt making this summer with my mum and my sister using the fleece that mum has from her sheep at home and maybe some pre-coloured fleece as well. I love the bright colours its possible to buy, they are so vibrant felted together.
