Felting Landscapes with Moy Mackay

moy-mackay

You don’t need to look far for inspirations of felted landscapes without coming across Moy Mackay.
Her first book, “Art in Felt & Stitch” was published in 2012 and reprinted three times in that same year! She gained almost instant notoriety for its fullness of detail and wonderful use of color, and is already working on her second book.

Moy was awarded Silver in the coveted Craft & Design Selected Awards 2013, in the category of Textiles and Needlecraft. The judge, Kaffe Fassett commented on Moy’s wonderful use of colour and texture. A graduate from the renowned Glasgow School of Art with a BA (Hons), Moy Mackay continues to work and live in from her home on the Scottish borders.

 

Moy primarily felts with Merino Wool Tops, and she shares a variety of her preferred fibers and threads as suggestions for felting your own pictures.

Wet Felted Landscape by Marie Spaulding

I really appreciated the detailed tutorials in this book and the wonderful selection of inspirational pieces from her felt paintings.  Moy walks the reader through her processes step by step: from fiber layout, wet felting, needle felting embellishments and machine stitching. Pictured above is my first little felted landscape after reading her book.

If you are not big on landscapes, she also has tutorials for birds, flowers!
