Love and Rockets and Wool

Makers: Maria Van Valkenberg
Mentors: Natalie Van Valkenberg, Geoff Van Valkenberg

Using wool and special needles, I am creating pictures. These wool images are made by carefully poking wool roving onto felted wool fabric. The needles I use are sharp and have tiny notches in them that grab the fibers of the wool, tangling them together so they attach. When I do this I can make pictures with the colored wool. It's fun, and takes some patience.
