17 July 2014

This felted vessel is the result of a challenge at the Creative Fibre retreat last weekend.  We were all given a bag of coloured fibre scraps which we had to weave in some way.  I separated out some colours and spun them, then tried my hand at circular weaving.  However when I cut my weaving off the loom I realised that my tension was way too tight as there was no way it was going to sit flat.  It was time for a change of plan, so I chucked the weaving in hot soapy water and felted it.
