Handmade felt is a wonderfully versatile material - you can create anything from sumptuous wallhangings and cushions to shaped and sculpted items, and all from a kitchen sink!
Using step-by-step photographs which show how to magically transform wool fibres into fabric, the authors present a series of easy-to-follow projects which range from simple panels to more adventurous shaped pieces. They explain how different colours of wool can be mixed to achieve a painterly effect and how silks and yarns can be incorporated to create amazing textures.This book is brimming with ideas and packed with inspiration Felt is a joy to work with - it is hard-wearing, practical, wonderfully soft to touch and a pleasure to work with; once you have learnt the basic techniques and become familiar with the material, you can go on to create your own unique designs.
