New Dimension

The textured and raised surface of these layered shingles and the 3D nature of this seaweed on the sand

is what I'm trying to create in felt.

I had pleated the nuno prefelt below using my embellisher machine and then tried unsuccessfully to wet felt additional roving to the undersides of the pleats. So I removed the roving and just completed felting it and ended up with a bit of a ripple effect - and alot smaller piece!

So much to learn and I'm glad I will have the workshop with felt artist Ulrieke Benner to help me out, soon.

I am not a felt artist but the piece you created in greens and grey is simply elegant. Peace, Mary Helen

Your felt experiments are lovely. I have also enjoyed looking at your other textile work especially the hand stitched pieces.
best from Tunisia,

Mary Helen - thank you - I like the colour combination and that I was able to get it to be 3D, but I have a long way to go!

Nadia thank you for your comment all the way from Tunisia!
