Today, I drew with wool. Yuli Somme is a felt maker based on Dartmoor. She has made a new kit for artists who would like to ‘draw’ with felt and wool. Myself and three other women gathered at Yuli’s studio in Moretonhampstead to trial the kit and give feedback.
This is what I made.
I really enjoyed the process and already have some ideas for a couple of larger pieces I’d like to make. The kits are a very good introduction to drawing with wool and have everything you need to go on and make whatever your imagination comes up with. (We had a big discussion about not ending sentences with a prepositions, but the last clause is an infinitive structure, so ‘What the hey!’ Plus it’s my blog, so I can do what I want . . . . to.)
You will be able to purchase Yuli Somme’s Art Felt kits from her website Bellacouche and at a few Dartmoor venues soon!
