A shell

I've made this piece a while ago to be a part of an exhibition "Wild about textiles". The exhibition was run by the group of textile artists - York textile artists. The shell is made of extra fine 16 mic merino and a Kap-merino, which create very smooth yet firm surface.

Feltrosa 2019

A very short report on Feltrosa 2019 festival. "Short" because I've not done any workshop this year and do regret about it!
The event was held in a lovely (although remote) location in Arezzo region. The exact place was small town/village Stia-Pratoveccia. An area of extraordinary national beauty! The area is famous for its Casentino wool fabric and has a great museum of wool and its production.

Apart from historical and technical stuff there was a small exhibition of work some felt artist. It was very impressive but I've not make a picture of  a label apparently so I do not know the name of the artist! Shame on me!

Back to Feltrosa itself.  There was an exhibition of felt pieces as well:



There were workshops and a social programme as usual. I didn't take any workshops but the results of one in particular had caught my attention and I think I should have done it even if it was about eco-printing! I have nothing against eco-printing, it's just the area I'm not interested in. But this particular workshop by Jade Aukin was about eco-printing on leather and results were stunning. And I missed it!

That's it for now!

Seed Pods

This three pieces are all hollow items imitating seed pods and a fruit. I really enjoy making them. More to come!

Autumn-Winter Events

We are nearly in the second part of the year! Time flies...

I have the most of September-December events confirmed. They are mostly the same as the last year with one addition and one miss (probably). I've decided to try and go farther afield, meaning out of  the region where I live. The reason is that being an active feltmaker and selling at many events in the area means that the number of potential customers of my most popular products goes down. Obviously who needs three glasses cases  😖! Fish is a different story because there are people who buy two and more easily. So all this considering I added a new event  - Kendal Wool Gathering in October and am going to miss ETSY Made Local event in December.

So this is my list of events for the autumn-winter part of the year 2018:

September      29-30    Masham Sheep Festival  Masham
October           27-28   Kendal Wool Gathering   Kendal
November       17-18   Crafts in the Pen  Skipton

Once a month is more than enough I think 😊
