Essential felt making skills for the beginner, as well as techniques and inspiration for the more experienced felter
Felt making is a popular medium for craftsmen, but few have explored its potential as an art form. This book demonstrates the exciting scope of pictorial felt making and explains how to create felt pictures with the depth and atmosphere usually associated with a graphite drawing or a watercolor painting. Written by a leading felt artist, it shows how to work freely with the wool as if it were paint or a piece of charcoal. It is illustrated with stunning pictures of finished work as well as practical demonstrations, and it also offers advice on the presentation and framing of finished work.
