Making More: Felt Brooches

For the last in the series of structured workshops, for delivering the four areas of my are the felt brooches.

I have not collected any 1940's felt flowers brooches for my own archive (yet ;-)...but this leather painted flower was an interesting find. You can still see some of the paint which has worn away over time.

And here are some of the Dryad felt brooches I made as part of my research and development. It was useful to see the kind of techniques they used. My designs are smaller in scale than these ones, which makes them more in keeping with the curtain ring brooches...but you can see my forget me knot brooch has a simialr stem to the Dryad designs.
