My technique is wet felting and nuno felting to create floral inspired hats, scarves and other accessories.
My garden is y inspiration. For over 30 years I have had a business drying and framing wedding bouquets and other flowers from special occasions.
I use merino wool and various fibers are laid out on fabric in a floral design to create scarves. These fibers and sold fabric are felted and shaped to form a hat and flowers.
As an undergrad at Edinboro I became interested in basics. Then as a grad student I majored in fabrics but never learned to felt. Upon retiring from teaching art I took several felting classes. I took a felted hat class from the lady, Chris White, who wrote the book on felting called "Uniquely Felt." The classes were at the Society for Contemporary Crafts in Pittsburgh.
