Our thanks to Louise Richardson for this great tutorial, which she completed as part of her university studies. She studies BA (Hons) Decorative Arts at Nottingham Trent University, and one particular workshop featured feltmaking.
She decided to develop this idea into developing 3D feltmaking, which soon turned into making these adorable little felted pods, designed to house birds in a truly eco-friendly, sustainable way.
Louise used local undyed wool in this project, all purchased from World of Wool, and designed the pods for the resort Centerparcs where she plans to put them up on some trees and watch how the birds interact!
“I love all things designed to be eco-friendly and I am currently working with printmaking in eco friendly ways, but I’m sure I’ll come back to feltmaking at some point as it’s very fun - and surprisingly therapeutic!”
We have put together a 'featured project' kit which contains the main items you will need to make these great felted pods at a discounted price of £12.49. Click the button to buy now!
