Artist's Work - Wet Felting with wool
There is no denying it, I love wet felting! It's just a matter of finding the time now. I have several felted pieces that I have on sale. I am trying to make room for some new ideas I have and I am also running out of room in my studio. For me, wet felting is a way for me to express how I am feeling in a certain time in my life and what has inspired me at that certain moment.
Wet felting encompasses so many different things that you can do. There is the flat felting which is scarves, tables runners and anything that is flat. There is 3D felting which usually consists of a resist, but not always. This includes felted slippers, bowls, hats, purses and pieces of Art that are not wearable. And then there is the Art itself. Wet Felting use to be a way of life. People did it to make clothing and yurts and necessities of life. Now people are using it as an art form just like painting or pottery.
If there is anything that you like but maybe in a different color of Merino, please let me know. I am very proud to use only non-mulesed fleece when making my products. It is very important to me that the sheep I get my fleece from were treated with the utmost respect and are never harmed.
Thank you for checking out my website and supporting me as an Artist.
Anyone can do wet felting, you just have to get a little bit wet!
