Shibori Felting

The beginnings of Shibori Felt making. 
I held a course for six weeks and this was the beginning process.
Students dyed their silk.
Layered alpaca fleece and dyed fleece on the back.
Felted and then buttoned and then re-felted with wisps
of fleece.
Re- felted and then embroidered and beaded.
A long process but made in a fine art way.
I have refined some of the techniques to make it 
an enjoyable process.
