Sian is an accomplished textile artist, who specialises in fabric landscapes and takes her inspiration from natural colours and textures. Last summer we featured two pieces of her work on our website, namely ‘Misty Morning’ and ‘Hedgerow’. Here we showcase examples of her work using a new technique Sian learnt at a workshop, featuring white and black Lutradur. In her own words, Sian describes how she made these pictures –- “The background of these two pieces is made of felt using a graduated grey palette. The merino fibres have been carded to get the right mix of colours and then wet felted to achieve the […]

How to Make Bats from Lutradur Black For this year’s Halloween, I decided to make some bats to decorate our home. I chose Lutradur Black for this project as it’s lightweight, semi transparent (rather like the wings of a real bat) and it does not tear or fray, plus it holds its shape beautifully. Each bat is made from a double layer of Lutradur Black, stitched across the top, with extra stitching to represent the spines of the wings; then two small oval pieces of material (either Lutradur Black or painted Evolon) one for the top and one for the underside to form the […]
