Some completed felt items Scarf layout of merino wool and scraps of silk fabric scrunched up to add to texture. An original unique scarf. Felting day is the first Wednesday of the month.
Some of the beautiful handcrafts made by our members. Lorraine has been spinning, natural dying and knitting. The shawl is dyed with avocado and the wool and alpaca give the different colours. The vest was dyed with fishbone fern
Bonnie is going to be a great grandmother, she has been busy knitting up her stash. That will be one trendy well loved bubba.
Donna has processed her home grown cotton ready for spinning. Lots of spinning practice first.
Joanie has been experimenting with ice dying on paj silk, tissue silk , and wool and silk fibre. The results are amazing, very colourful, great patterns.
Joanie is going to felt the silk fabric.
A special day for lots of colourful dyeing fun. Many members used different dye methods. There was ice dying of silk fabric, you have to be very patient and wait till the ice has melted to see the result. Micro wave dying of silk fibres, colourful spiral dye of handspun heated in the microwave and normal dye pot on a cooktop.
Felting days have begun again at club, the first Wednesday of every month.
Great to see a few more members giving felting a go. We made nuno scarves and resist felting. Works in progress.
Lots of lovely craft this week from Donna, Sam and Pam
A skein from Sam, 2 different shades plied together, just what I ordered! And his woven table runner, started off as a scarf, but that’s a whole other story!
Donna’s felted wrap, nuno felted with merino/silk batts and added sari silk and hand spun, felted onto cotton voile.
