Here are some of the tools of the trade for wet/hand felting: merino wool roving, solar pool covering, thin plastic, bubble wrap, resist (this one was intended for a hat, but it also works for a bowl), palm washboard, scissors, painters tape, soap and water, ball brause, and a lot of friction, agitation, rolling, throwing, etc. The next set of pix is the result. I see a very colorful bowl with “cracked mud” technique that can also be worn.

Good news!

Another of our new artists (welcome back!) is Louise Giordano, shown here on the right with gallery director Samantha Spalti. Louise works mostly with fine yarns in natural fibers. And now she is working with felt - specializing in wet and nuno felting. Never trained in the arts, her past experience includes 21+ years as a French and Spanish teacher in secondary schools, 15+ years as a career counselor in higher education, and many years since retiring in private career consulting and volunteering. We can’t wait to show you her scarves, wall hangings and even a vessel or two.
