Book Spotlight: Complete Feltmaking

Complete Feltmaking by Gillian Harris
Author Gillian Harris started out as a graphic designer before pursuing a career in feltmaking. She teaches numerous feltmaking workshops and sells a collection of her felted handbags from her website.

Her first book 'Complete Feltmaking' covers all aspects of feltmaking including making flat felt, creating 3d shapes, felted knits, needle felting and other techniques such as cobweb and nuno felting.

You will find an overview of the history of feltmaking, information about the different types of wool fibre, and a list of essential equipment, plus a useful Glossary and templates for some of the projects.

Each colourful project is labelled either beginner, intermediate and advanced, making it easier to select what to make while you master the various feltmaking techniques. 

The beautifully photographed projects, using brightly coloured Merino wool tops, and Gillian's clear and easy to follow instructions, will inspire the reader to progress to making their own felted designs.
