Feltmaking is a popular medium for craftsmen, but few have explored its potential as an art form. This new book demonstrates the exciting scope of pictorial feltmaking and explains how to create felt pictures with the depth and atmosphere usually associated with a graphite drawing or a watercolour painting. Written by a leading felt artist, it shows how to work freely with the wool as if it were paint or a piece of charcoal.

  • Essential feltmaking skills for the beginner, as well as techniques and inspiration for the more experienced feltmaker
  • Advice on how drawing and painting skills, such as perspective composition and the use of colour, can be applied to felt pictures
  • Illustrated with stunning pictures of finished works, as well as practical demonstrations
  • Guide to the presentation and framing of work

" There are suggestions on composition, perspective, colour, together with information on other fibres to add texture to the work. There is good advice on the presentation and framing of the finsished artwork. The illustrations are very atmospheric, capturing the subtle tones of the wool tops. This is a book for the artist. "

" This is an attractive book that offers a new look at felt making. Based more on pictorial art than craft, I thought that the title did it less than justice as it suggests a fuzzy felt approach rather than the almost abstract, sketch-like effect that Andrea has produced in her work.
A lovely little book. "
