This is the finished blue and pink Merino sculptural collar which I started last week at Felt Inspired in Belchford.
Wet felted Sculptural Collar made from Merino wool.
I used a press stud fastener to hold it in place and added a wet felted floral detail including three leaves, two cords and a ‘rainbow bead‘. I learnt the rainbow bead technique from the wonderful Dutch felt artist Annemie Koenen. They take a crazy amount of effort to make but are so beautiful it’s well worth it!
I can’t believe it’s been a month since we started the felting group in Belchford. Where does the time go…..
Once again we had eight ladies gathered for a felting session. Val and Karen couldn’t make it this month but we welcomed two new faces, Ann and Sheila. Sheila brought her current project to work on which is a very handsome needle felted owl…..

Adding feather detail on the back.
Ann began working on a needle felted landscape and I’m loving the colour scheme…..
Rosie was busy with her beautiful new wool making more vegetables (we’re starting to suspect an obsession here!)…..
Looking good enough to eat!
Olga was working on her sketchbook ideas for new projects…..

Pat was busy with embellisher…..

Janet made a wet felted bowl and then did some more work on the lovely picture she started last session….
I started another Merino collar which will get finished at home…
Fibres laid out ready for felting.
All in all another enjoyable day in Belchford.
Today was the first meeting of a new felting group, Felt Inspired, which will meet in Belchford Village Hall on the second Wednesday of every month from 10-4pm.
Eight ladies attended our first meeting. Olga, Pat, Karen and Jenny brought their embellishing machines to work on.
Rosie concentrated on needle felting…..
……while Val, Janet and myself chose to wet felt.
It was an enjoyable day with good company and the time went far too fast!
Taking a break from all that hard work!
