FIBRE ALERT I have just recieved some amazing products from an excellent Australian site http://www.essentialtextileart.com . I discovered them on line whilst doing a search for nuno felt and boy am I glad I did! Thanks Susan, for your prompt and friendly service, I will definitely be recommending you to my friends. My order consisted of packets of sari loom ends, sari silk fibres, sari ribbon (basically strips of sari fabric) and a mixed packet of coloured suede fish skin, great for embellishing!!.
Needless to say I just had to get stuck in immediately to some felting. I decided to use one of the sari loom ends and a sari ribbon to create a beautiful long wall hanging in nuno felt. This is really a piece that needs to be lit from behind to fully appreciate the textures and I think that I need to experiment with a simple light box and see how this works for me. I promise to post a picture on this blog as soon as I have mastered the concept!
