First Felt…How will you begin your creative practice in 2017?
“On the first day of the year I try to include some small aspect of all the activities and attitudes that I want to bring into the new year. It’s also a wonderful way to approach the first creative project for the year. It can just be a small project, but can be an embodiment or opening of our creative aspirations for the year.” Fiona Duthie
Fiona started her year with a project that encompasses many of her interests in fibre arts- hidden messages, exploring fibre arts techniques and inspiring others in their work. She writes about making a text filled felt tape for knitting or weaving, her first felt project of the year, here: www.fionaduthie.com/first-felt-2017
“My inspiration for this scarf was a beautiful creation of Fiona Duthie, from her blog a few years ago. This is my impression of that piece. It represents growth to me. Sometimes within inner world you sense a change. I can’t quite put my finger on it but I have a feeling of moving forward, lighter, simpler….” Sheryl MacLeod-Sidwell
