Studio time

For the first time in 18 months I was able to spend a block of time in the studio. 8 whole days! As the light was not sufficient for painting, I experimented with a few different felting techniques.

For a new grey bag, I started out laying out wool for wetfelting a new seamless bag:

Once the bag was felted and dried, I needlefelted locks on top to create a little sculptural touch:
And a locally made ceramic button:

This particular bag never made it to the local gallery. A visiting friend bought it before it even left the studio!
