Experimental Textiles homework. Working with constructed textiles.

Well, I’ve done bits and bobs to things and not really finished anything yet, so here is a quick post but I hope to change the felt into a vessel at some point. ‘The Thing’ has undergone some stitching but I’m not done with it yet! Looking forward to a weekend of dyeing coming up! And probably the odd bit of cake…

This is my silk paper vessel, this took some doing. Lots of layers, re-layering, getting it off bowls when it was stuck, re-shaping it in other bowls until it looked fairly presentable. I have a lot to learn about using silk fibres but it was an experiment and I enjoyed it for that, which is what it’s all about!
