Welcome to Gallery Room 1 Caren's Collection
Using wool and silk fibres in a 'painterly' way and using felting techniques, I produce warm and textural felt 'paintings' I use the fibres as if they were paint on a brush and build them up over several layers. Once I am happy, I then apply warm soapy water and a lot of elbow grease, rolling the piece until the fibres shrink and knit together forming the finished piece of felt. I then free machine embroider into the piece for added definition.
