Book Description

Feltmaking is a popular medium for craftsmen, but few have explored its potential as an art form. This new book demonstrates the exciting scope of pictorial feltmaking and explains how to create felt pictures with the depth and atmosphere usually associated with a graphite drawing or a watercolour painting. Written by a leading felt artist, it shows how to work freely with the wool as if it were paint or a piece of charcoal. Covers essential feltmaking skills for the beginner, as well as techniques and inspiration for the more experienced feltmaker, with advice on how drawing and painting skills, such as perspective composition and the use of colour, can be applied to felt pictures. Illustrated with stunning pictures of finished works, as well as practical demonstrations, it also includes a guide to the presentation and framing of work.

5.0 out of 5 stars Inspiring stuff! 30 July 2012
By Leefs
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
What a brilliant book! I can honestly say that I'd never imagined you could get these sort of effects with felt, this book has really changed my whole approach to felting. The author clearly uses the wool as an art medium, painting in wool, in a way that makes this craft much more modern and inspiring, and she gives good, clear instructions. It is unusual to find a book that not only inspires you, but also gives you just the information you need to take a new direction forward.

4.0 out of 5 stars Making felt pictures 28 Mar. 2012
By Maria
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book starts with the basics of wet felt making, and for anyone who has made felt unusually this tells you more about creating landscape pictures rather than just felt bases for decoration using stitch. I have seen the authors work & it is stunning. It is not a large book but gives lots of information. The author does not use an embellishing machine but I should imagine that this could be used for quite a bit of the work. I shall be giving it a try. A good buy if you want some ideas for something rather different in this craft.

5.0 out of 5 stars heart felt creativity 22 May 2012
Format:Paperback
In this slight book Andrea Hunter explains with great photos and pictures throughout how to draw and paint with felt. She is generous with sharing her own processes and methodology; which are a world away from the whimsy with which felt is often associated.
It is written from the heart sharing her real passion for rural arts and crafts and with her subject Wensleydale landscape and .. sheep. It provides practical information about working with fleece and picture making so that a beginner can follow, but also would give a good basis for other textile and fine artists. well worth the money ! Or even better go on one of her courses if you get the chance.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing Felt Pictures 28 July 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I saw Andre Hunter's felt pictures at Hawes Gallery and was amazed by the work and the way that the texture of the felt helped to convey the landscape and the animals. Following this up at her Gallery, she showed us how she made the pictures and so I bought the book. Members of my local craft group were so impressed that we bought a whole set of books and are planning to try out the instructions, which seem to be very clear. The book won't turn us into artists but may help some of our artists to make felt pictures.

5.0 out of 5 stars inspirational 9 Jan. 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
a nice book to read and then follow instruction that are clear and precise, small pictures would make great cards, you do need a bit of imagination and a eye for colour but that is overcome by her instructions on translating photo to actual felted picture work. Clear instructions with picture prompts to help you along.
