Layering

The layering and pleating workshop went well but unfortunately I can’t show you any of the pleated items. We made them in single colours and by the end of the day it was too dark and wet for me to get good photos. The pictures below are of on method of layering to create colour / textural effects.

The darker shade behind and providing a narrow border worked very well for Mich and is destined to become a cushion.

The lovely cutwork in this by Liz is very effective in showing off the multiple colours behind.

This was an interesting effect from Pauline where the cut felt was laid back rather than removed, the intention being to do more and create a flower effect.

Edna went for diagonal areas across her felt where she cut random shapes reminiscent of markings on giraffes. This was made with a friend in mind and is the first felt Edna has ever created – didn’t she do well!
