a life of fibre

Covered vases

For the felt vessel workshop that I ran recently I managed to source some short glass vases, just perfect for covering with felt. The workshop was working in British wools with silk and plant fibre embellishments and obviously that meant I needed to have a sample or two.

Blue Faced Leicester with mulberry silk and throwsters silk waste emebllishments.

Shetland wool with mulberry silk and throwsters silk fibre embellishments. I left this one a little taller to obscure the glass vase and deliberately chopped into the rim to give it a more organic look.

These are what I refer to as 3 in 1 vases. Use the glass vase alone, the felt vase alone or combine them. The next opportunity to experience this workshop will be at Wharfe Wool Fair on Saturday 5th May – booking essential as space is limited.
