Felter Skelter - your essential needle felting column from Mr X Stitch!

MISZEK is the work of artist Misz Ajdacki. He creates soft sculptures with wool, yarn, and reclaimed fabric. Many of his creations fall somewhere in between wearable art and sculpture, often interacting intimately with both the viewer and the wearer. Misz says “I’m a life-forms’ manufacturer” and adds that each creation is “from the heart.”

What Technique Is This?

Needle Felting is the process of using a notched or “barbed” needle to compress layers of wool into denser felt that can be manipulated to create 3D sculptures. It is different to wet felting, which uses water to combine wool fibres, and these days there are a range of felting tools available that can enable you to make your own soft sculptures with ease!
