Jeanette Appletons workshop

Neck wrap in colours I first thought were terrible but I am starting to like it, and two bowls it is a good way of really mixing up colours and leaving your comfort zone.

workshop with Jeanette Appleton

Jeanette's workshop was about colour and blending and how to make and use fine prefelts.
Firstly we took a small amount of wool in 3 to 4 different colours laid them down then blended them by hand ,them carded them.We then photographed them on black and white paper as a memory aid.It was lovely to see some of the beautiful shades produced.We then made a very fine prefelt by using these colours,I had taken a lot of colours that I was not too fond or so ended up with a real mishmash.
By placing other fabrics or wool fibres underneath you could change the shades and colour we then had to combine the different pieces .these cut outs were great for getting an idea of what parts might end up looking like.Some of the finished pieces
