Lindsey Tyson Workshop

Yesterday I attended the workshop of Lindsey Tyson.

Lindsey is a very talented textile and fiber artist and a lovely person. The technique of transfer printing on fabric is relatively straight forward technically but much more demanding artistically. The workshop was with YorkFeltmakers group and they created absolutely gorgeous pieces! My own works are less impressive I am afraid! Still I post them here:

Strawberry Morning

I've tried a new (for me!) wool, called KapMerino from German supplier. It has very short fibers and soft as 19 mic merino should be. The result - very smooth and firm felt. Sold
