Felting 2

As you can see we had a lovely bright, large hall to work in and there were just enough ladies to make it a friendly sociable morning. I think there were about 16 of us altogether. This was not a club but a group of ladies, friends of friends, who got together to put on their own workshop with an invited tutor.

My friend, who had invited me, used beautiful Autumnal colours for her piece. It is amazing that this mound of fibres compacted down so far.

The net was pulled back to check on the progress of the felting.

After the felt had been rubbed under the net we rolled the felt up and squeezed it and rolled it to encourage the felting to complete.

This looks like so much fun Julie! I am definitely going to try felting one day.

Looks like you all enjoyed yourselves! I have done wet felting a couple of times and by the time I was finished my back was very sore from leaning over the bench. Some lovely colours and patterns here!

I don't look at your blog for a few days - and gosh how much you have been doing. And so beautiful too.

Thanks for all the postings, very inspiring!
