Mehmet and Theresa May O'Brian were soooo lovely! They are the duo behind Ikonium Studios in Istanbul. If anyone is out that way, I totally recommend a day workshop with them, you learn SO MUCH. They...
Soooo good! I love the color and the angle. Please keep me updated, I'd love to see more.
Thanks once again everyone! I'm going to be attending a workshop in Istanbul in two weeks to study with master felter Mehmet Girgic. I expect to put this idea to use in larger more grand ways shortly...
Hi everyone! Thanks so much for the kind words!
Chrissy, it looking like charcoal really worked against me at the large student show I took part of a month ago. People just walked right by! I...

I really love this!!! This is truly the best wool painting I've seen, and I'll think I might have to give something like this a go now. Thanks for sharing.
Bel, thanks for the ironing tip! I'll have to try that sometimes and see how it affects my 2d work.

Hi there. Its possible that they threw it in the washing machine to wet felt it after wards. I've never done this, however, I've heard about this technique as a way of tightening things up. It's also...
I've been doing some experimenting lately with felt "drawing" inspired by posts where people have done felt "paintings"

Christie that's an excellent suggestion, I'll look into that. Another possibility I was thinking of was using fabric markers.

I was wondering if anyone has experimented with/had any success with using various printmaking medium on 100%wool premade sheets.
I'm thinking a doing a series of work that I'd...
thank you kay! You were one of the first felt artists I found when I discovered needle felting and was one of my first inspirations for sure. :)
