Gift-filled Felt United Day 愉悅滿溢的一天

Just received my order from Amazon the felt books - A really gift-filled day. There are lots of renowned artists' master pieces. Some of them are familiar names in Facebook and blogs I follow. My salute to them on the Felt United Day today. The one in "500 Felt Objects" is Vilte Kazlauskaite - I learnt from her the nuno felt skills in Holland last April.



Vilte's no doubt a master of nuno felt. One of her workshops students' great pieces. So amazing ! That's why I wanted to learn from her.

Just like playing magic, wool and chiffon entanged and formed the super textures.


In the other book "1000 Artisan Textiles", there're abstract comtemporary textile art of Marie-Clark Buckle
She's a famous textile artist in UK. She developed the floating felt light arts and held series of exhibitions of textile arts.



Marie-Clare's art light of felt pieces are impressive.



I learnt and made this abstract hanging with her guidance.



During my stay I learnt from Marie-Clare lots of wet felt techniques and made pictures, vessel, pouches, hat and handbag. It's a fruitful trip.



Bloggers asked where did I learn and asked me info. There're quite some very good felters worldwide. These are the two I attended and I still miss the beautiful places and memorable days.



In England before the workshop started, we walked up the hill to view the village of Abbotsbury, Dorset





Beautiful little village amid the pastures.






We fed the goats in the B&B.






This is the village of Baard in Holland I learnt nuno felt.
If chances permit I'd come again. These are beautiful places of learning and refreshing.

  6. I just found you through your wonderful interview with Janelle at Of Pinks and Fairytales. Yours is the first blog I've visited in Hong Kong! I visited there just for 1 day a couple of years ago on a stopover - amazing city!

    Your work is so beautiful and inspiring and I loved hearing your interview answers! I'm following your blog now and hope to come back and see more of your fabulous creativity!

  7. Thank you so much for sharing your textile experiences and tours of the beautiful places you went to study. Thank you for visiting Marian's garden. I look on the internet and it seems that the berries are edible. I don't think I want to be the first around her to try. Hugs Ginger
