I really enjoyed our felt flower workshop the other day.
I love the way the gorgeous colours of the fibre blend and blur as it felts.
Wet felting is such a tactile experience, rubbing and rolling, seeing the fibres contract and cling to each other. The colours from one layer blend and appear or disappear like magic.
A tiny snip in the felt can change the whole impression. You can then stretch it and shape it to give petals. That is even before we have added a touch of class with a few beads, maybe a half silk cocoon or some stitching .
I love adding my flowers to a broach back then using to adorn a jacket or bag. Or make lovely large flowers for a wall hangings or to add a flamboyant touch to a sun hat
I also enjoy seeing how people interpret and use colours bringing out their tastes and personality.
Looking forward to sharing with you
