A crazy thing happened yesterday- I cleaned my studio! Seems like a good time to take some pictures of my fiber set up:
What is usually my sewing/drawing/painting station, has been transformed into a spinning/felting station. Right now I am needle felting an animation, which means I get to work with fiber! Loads of beautiful, natural, local fiber...
I am tidying up in preparation for the final climactic scene in a 2-minute short for Hansencrafts about the evolution of handspinning. This is the scene when the spinning wheel meets electricity, and it takes place outside in an open field.
Needle felting these sets feels like three dimensional painting. The wool roving is like a brush stroke, and blue foam my canvas.
I will cover up the windows with cardboard when I'm ready to animate, but I for now I savor the natural light.
