There's going to be a Fiber Arts Symposium in Tyler, 23 July.  It's Free!  And open to the public - no garb, plain clothes.  I think they're just asking for site donations at the door to say thank you to the church for hosting the event.

The classes are very tempty tempty if you're in the Tyler area.

~feels accomplished~

Today I looked at my last picspam post and I realized how much progress I've made since April.  I can now identify my wool breeds by touch.  I'm dyeing my own raw wool, raw silk, and raw bamboo fibers.  I'm slowly mastering three techniques - wet felting, nuno felting, and needle felting.  And I'm able to look at wool roving and know roughly what my finished piece will look like - sometimes I'm able to make that happen. 

I've progressed a fair bit since my erm... 'lump o' wool' disaster, so I figured I'd share a handful of pics with you.

Picspam cut.

apollinav: apollinav (Death Eater AV)

I’m certain this has been done numerous times, but I’ve documented the process of making Death Eaters masks in detail. Dixiebell, ebil witch that she is, put a bug in my ear to go on a raiding party at Hogsmeade Witches Weekend. And really, who can say no to that?

 

Since it’s very graphics heavy, it’s below the cut.

 

Oooh Shiny!  )
