Have you heard about the art of felt-making?
Regular MamaMoontime readers will know that I love to felt, and often teach classes and workshops showing people this wonderful technique.
What is felting?
It is the art of matting wool fibres to make a piece of sturdy material. I’m sure most of you know ‘felt’, the kind you find in craft shops, and may have even used it many times. These commercially prepared pieces are made using the same principles of matting together fibres, usually wool and acrylic in big machines. This kind of felt (especially 100% wool felt) is perfect for just about all crafty projects.
But it is different from my kind of felt.
Felting by hand is an art form.
An accessible, toffynose-free art form that can transform your creative ideas into reality.
Felting can be used to:
*make art works for your home,
*stitch up fancy clothing
*and design hats, coats and scarves.
But best of all, parents can use felting to make fabulous Story Mats.
A Story Mat is a tool for play and storytelling.
We make it and it becomes an intriguing and engaging toy that will ‘fire up’ the imaginations of young and old.
