‘CREATING FELT PICTURES’
Feltmaking is a popular medium for craftsmen, but few have explored its potential as an art form. This new book demonstrates the exciting scope of pictorial feltmaking and explains how to create felt pictures with the depth and atmosphere usually associated with a graphite drawing or a watercolour painting.
The book contains
- Essential feltmaking skills for the beginner, as well as techniques and inspiration for the more experienced feltmaker.
- Advice on how drawing and painting skills, such as perspective, composition and the use of colour, can be applied to felt pictures.
- Illustrated with stunning pictures of finished works, as well as practical demonstrations.
- Guide to the presentation and framing of work.
If you are a textile enthusiast looking for guidance in transferring drawing and painting skills into feltmaking, or an artist wishing to explore felt as a drawing medium, Andrea’s new book ‘Creating Felt Pictures ’ will give expert guidance.
Andrea is a professional felt artist and her success in demonstrating the merits of wool as a drawing medium have been an important step in pushing the boundaries of this ancient craft.
