Description
When heat, moisture, and pressure are applied to wool, its fibers bond together to create felt. This elemental phenomenon provides the basis for the craft of feltmaking, whose appealing simplicity is also reflected in its material requirements: Besides wool, water, and soap, you need a surface on which to agitate or "full" the wool, a sharp pair of scissors, and, if the project requires it, a pattern. The basic techniques have many applications, and are so easy that even a young child can master them. Using just four basic techniques, The Art of Feltmaking shows how to create a variety of felt projects. The book begins with an overview of the history of the craft, which is followed by a detailed survey of materials and tools. Each feltmaking technique--making felt ropes, felt beads, flat felt, and seamless felt--is then demonstrated with step-by-step photographs and detailed instructions. By combining and varying these four methods, you can make these and many other projects: • Jewelry: Necklaces, bracelets, earrings, pins, barrettes, and buttons • Wearables. Slippers, mittens, hats, and doll apparel • Toys and Figures. Felt balls, simple rope-and-bead figures, poseable dolls, finger puppets, hand puppets, and stuffed toys. • Vessels. Pouches, purses, and boxes. • Masks. Eye masks, large masks, and masks with three-dimensional features. With The Art of Feltmaking as your guide, there are no limits to what you--and your kids--can create with felt. "When heat, moisture, and pressure are applied to wool, its fibers bond together to create felt.' I never knew that until I read this intriguing book by Anne Einset Vickrey, author and workshop instructor. This book provides a comprehensive introduction to the craft."-- Belle Aroire magazine, Spring 2001
