The fine craft guild I belong to is having an exhibit at an art center in Naples, Florida.and the theme is Crafted by Hand. I'm making a shibori nuno felted wall hanging, influenced by Rae Woolnough.
Nuno felting is a fabric felting technique developed around 1992 by Polly Stirling, a fiber artist from New South Wales, Australia. The name is derived from the Japanese word "nuno", meaning cloth. Wool is felted by mingling into the silk fibers with rolling and fulling.
"Shibori" is the Japanese word for a variety of ways of shaping cloth and securing it before felting.
The embellishing fibers are teeswater locks, cotswold locks and mohair locks. All have a a different sheen and curl. They will be used to complement the shibori technique. I dyed the locks and silk fabric with acid dyes in the colors lime squeeze, Caribbean blue and sapphire.
I needle fetled locks of Teeswater, mohair
and Costwold into the felted fabric.
It's 15x30 inches. I'm going to name it Intertidal
