This issue of Felter Skelter is a rollercoaster of emotion, as it is the last one that will feature the magnificent Moxie. As you may realise, most of the columnists here at Mr X Stitch are awesome artists and one of the side effects of this is that they end up victims of their own success. Moxie is producing so much fantastic felted art these days, that she doesn’t have time for this column any more, and we’ll miss her a lot.
We’re leaving you with a selection of pieces from Moxie’s recent submission into the Bellevue Arts Musuem Biennial – all of these pieces are needle felted and ridiculously amazing.
It has been an honour having Moxie as part of the family and I cannot wait to see what she comes up with next!
Felter Skelter continues, however, and we’ve got another needle felting superstar joining our ranks in the form of Zoe Williams!
Zoe will be sharing her view of the world of needle felting and I’m sure it’ll be ace. Don’t forget, if you’ve got any needle felted art to share, you should drop us a line immediately! We’re always keen to see what stabby goodness you come up with.
Moxie is an artist, fiber pusher and genuine human being. She likes you very much indeed.
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!
