It is a week since I posted last, so my self-imposed schedule means I have to post today. But there is not much to post about. I have been experimenting with making fruit shaped wet felted pieces with little success. I have never quite understood why people would want textile fruit so my heart hasn't been in it really. I am doing it for a friend who has asked me to work with some of her primary school art classes again this year. I will have to either convince her that 3D wet felting is not for young beginners or come up with a really good idea!
I have found some good info online. This site was very helpful (I have put the second post as it has a link to the first.). I have made a pear - sort of. It is vaguely pear-shaped (in many senses of the phrase) but is still flattish, not spherical like I would like it to be. The apple looks like a heart too. That is due to my inexperience with 3D wet felting and adding layers.
More work to be done to get it better.
On a more self-promoting note, here is a link to an article about the Beneath the Southern Sky exhibition which is still travelling the world. It doesn't mention my work specifically but I am basking in reflected glory.
