Dark Skies

Happy Easter! I hope you are all stuffed with chocolate and are enjoying the weather! It’s been the hottest so far here in Wales, UK. Here is a catch up with what I myself have been up to over Easter.

I have indulged in buying some new felting needles from Heidifeathers, who always provides great needle felting equipment and service! These needles have 10 different types, 30 in total. I shall look forward to trying these with my projects!

Currently I am working on a scarf, the patterns are to represent dark skies inspired by Turner, Ian Aivazovsky and Moy Mackay. The scarf shall illustrate the one verse of Edgar Allan Poe’s poem Annabel Lee where things start to go dark, the angels in heaven are not happy and a cold wind blows out and kills Annabel Lee.

These are a few felt examples of colour experiments.

Still not sure what colours to settle with, but keep an eye out for my next blog post to find out!

Exhibition Update

Hello everyone!

Well done to my class for the fund raising events to raise money for our third year grand final exhibition (which, by the way, is Mid-May). It is so amazing seeing the hard work and dedication of the students being put into this. We have sold ark work, things that have been made using laser cut, cards, zines, decorative hangings, and definitely a lot of cakes! Everything has been handmade. Here are some photos and the posters! (Scroll down further to see my own card designs of the sunflower and bee.)

Let’s Get The Ball Rolling!

The new blog about other artisans. It’s only just getting started, so it’s just me at the moment, but keep an eye on it for more people!

Hello to you, and hello to the first Uncharted Artisans blog post!

Seeing as this is a brand new blog and no one as of yet to interview, let’s get the ball rolling by introducing myself first. (This’ll also give you the idea of posts to come!)

My name is Sarah and I specialise in needle felt. This involves felt wool, which is wool untreated before it is turned into the type you can knit with, and you stab it with a sort of fine barbed needle. This pushes the fibers of the wool together to form shapes.
