I taught a felt picture workshop for the Yorkshire Alpaca Group on Saturday and they made some great pictures. It was a lovely warm and welcoming group, we had a lot of fun.
They all have alpaca fibres for the backgrounds and some are wholly alapca. Others have been decorated with a few merino fibres to experiment with colour.
Some of the pictures also have cotton and wool threads incorporated.The seascape above has silk cocoon added.
Some of the pictures have quite specific shapes on them, which were achieved by laying the fibres on in the correct position or, use of pre-felts which allow you to get nice clean edges to shapes.
Above left was modelled to create a low relief effect and I just love the fantasy bird. Lots of varied pictures for inspiration.
