Description

Felting is an ancient craft, thought to have been discovered thousands of years ago when wool was put into leather moccasins to keep the cold out. The pressure of walking, combined with moist conditions, matted the fibre into a warm fabric.

The art has moved on and now we can enjoy the benefits of recent inventions, such as bubble wrap to help create felt.

Fine pulled wool rovings (fibres) are layered onto a sheet of bubble wrap with fibres such as silk and recycled fabric to create a textural contrast and design.

With the work held in place with tulle, soapy water is used to wet the materials down.

Felting – the bonding together of the fibres – begins when a second layer of bubble wrap goes on top and the work is wrapped around a rod to be rolled back and forth on a table.

The fiction causes the fibres to fuse together to form a colourful fabric that can then be used for any textile project.
