Get (a bit) messy and have fun at the same time as using techniques which combine making your own felted background with silk cocoon strippings, spray dyes, threads, snips of fabrics, papers, Angelina fibres, and more. Add to this a handmade impressed, textured and coloured metal surface. Finish with a flourish of simple stitch and easy beading to create a truly impressive artwork. Primarilty hand stitching, though if we have longer, then a sewing machine can be used.
