Today we explored creating our own felt, none of us had done this before, so it was good to try something new. Initially we made a flat sample piece in our own design and then played around with some 3D ideas, we made ball shapes and some of us tried other ones. We ended up with different miniature hat shapes too.
Later in the morning we spent some time thinking about what our final pieces would look like, what they would have in them and what techniques we would need to use in felt to create them. Our designs were then drawn out to scale to make us think about the amount of work they would take to create, the colours we would use and if we could incorporate any 3D elements.
Next time we will create our designs large scale, ready for the final session where we will embellish them.
