These were my first attempts at dry needle felting. They were completed in Denmark last summer when we were on holiday. My daughter and I were taught while we were there by a family friend.
The little character on the right was created as an example when my daughter had a 'felting party' for her 11th birthday. She invited 5 friends over and they had a great time - lots of broken needles, several minor stab wounds requiring plasters, but fortunately no serious injuries
Another amazing sculpture at the Eden Project - THE WEEE MAN (stands for Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) - view the large size to read all about him.
We had a lot of fun trying to make out all the different things he was made of - the teeth were rather intriguing, then we realised they were computer mice! Do a Flickr search on WEEE to see lot's more photos of him.
Certainly got us thinking about what we will buy (and discard) in the future...
Married with two children, a stepdaughter and two grandaughters. I am fortunate to live surrounded by beautiful countryside, yet only a few miles from the Georgian city of Bath. I have a passion for Visual Journaling and mixed media. When I was first starting out I found a lot of inspiration scattered around the web. So I decided to create a resource for anyone wanting to keep a journal and www.journalcraft.co.uk was born.
I previously spent 25 years in the IT industry, and still advise small businesses.
