Six weeks ago I was approached by a Singaporean girl for the interest of wool felting. She said she was referred by a member of IFA (International Feltmakers Association) while she was in London with the impressive wool felt. She particularly wanted to make a wool felt hat and a scarf. Since she lives in the sup-tropical region she would like a light cobweb scarf and a hat with pleats. After a few back and forth emails communication we made it happen. This week my Singapore student Ada flown in and made under my tutelage this set of hat and scarf.
我的遠道而來星加玻學生, 開朗燦爛的笑容, 在寒流下也暖我心窩, 兩日的學習, 她完成了這帽子與圍巾.
The days while Ada was in Hong Kong the temperature dropped to 14C, it's the coldest this year. We could not work outdoor. We worked on the dining table with easy setting. First cut the foam template of Ada's size.......... with Mogi's good company.......
Ada laid the wool batt........ after procedures of rolling, rubbing, shaping.......
Day one Ada finished the hat and happy with it.
So a piece of merino scarf with a big crocheted red heart, a small dark blue heart and a few Teeswater fleece for the textural surface
The scarf of purple shades with yarn strings and mulberry for the textures look
A freestyle scarf with the wool felt flower ring closure
It's light in a breezy day
With Ada's enthusiasm, cheerful character with laughs, the one-on-one teaching never boring.
Ada's 2-day learning of a wool felt hat with pleats and a scarf of nuno felt &cobweb was fun.
Thank you for coming Ada. I'm glad you're the one from Singapore enjoyed the versatility of wool.
