Posts Tagged ‘3D structures’

Our recent September meeting was named ‘Felted and shaken’ and we started with the eating of kinder surprise chocolates so as to use the small plastic containers for the shaking and felting of our wool tops into felt balls. As is the way with our group all manner of items were displayed, shaken and felted as an offshoot. It is wonderful how you get together with a group of like-minded people and the inspiration and ideas just flow! We were rolling, shaking jars with beads, shaking pavlova containers, and displaying some beautiful felted and nuno felted items.

We also had a go at starting nuno felting which was a long process not quite finished in the session, so if anyone has any photos of their finished product please email through and I will add to the blog post.
