Nine episodes of a secret life is a series that shows how all moments in life are encirkled by love . We often keep our deepest feelings and thoughts secret and we limit ourselves to the structure of society , through which we experience blockades . In essence there are no blockades , everything is a fluid whole. Nothing ever has a beginning or an end , unfortunately we made that up, which destroys our sense about dignity #contemporaryart#wabisabi#mindfulness#maartjekingma
Step 2: Layering! (If you’ve missed step 1, pop over to the post before this to see what I’m talking about!)
After the bases have been cut, I layer on the wool fibres to make the felt🐏
I like to work by pulling small tufts of fibres off my roving, criss-crossing where possible to ensure a good, strong felt💪🏻
The more layers of wool, the thicker the felt.
I usually like to start thinner to preserve translucency of my felt. And I can always add more if I want to🐏
For my tapestry work, I also add lace applique, yarn and wool locks to create texture✨
Experimenting with knitting discarded yarns of Arashi shibori. The most beautiful part of this is that the material reflects a memory.
The yarn was overused by the time I decided to knit this, finer at some places and thicker at some. The multiple processes of dyeing that the yarn has gone through reflects in the colours and texture of the surface from pale whites to ice blues with bits of brown.
I am very excited to experiment further. Please Feel free to shoot ideas if you have any.
