Project summary:

Felt is manipulated using stitching and dyed using acid dye. The heat from the boiling dye permanently sets the folds produced by the manipulation.

My aim is to produce decorative vessels using the qualities of wool and the felt making techniques to produce objects that will keep their shape without the use of stiffeners or any other medium.

The vessel can be manipulated to form different shapes.
