Thinking with your hands

I’m thinking about other accessible felting methods for adults or children with poor dexterity so I’ve been playing around with felting scraps of commercial felt cloth onto needlepunch felt. I love using the negative shapes left over from previous projects. The one on the left is my daughter’s who’s always pleased to be my felting guinea pig.  We discovered that assembling is great fun, but the felting itself is extremely tricky as some of the commercial felt is synthetic so it won’t become entangled with the woolly base. But I’m going to see if we can try again using tiny wisps of merino fleece to secure the blocks of colour.
