Leineperi Feltart Biennale 7.8.-6.9.2020

Black Sheep & Leineper's Ruukki present:

Leineperi Feltart Biennale 2020 7.8.-6.9.2020

Leineperi Feltart Biennale is a Felt Art Biennale.

Ellun blanket will send three works to the exhibition. More information about the event will be published closer to the time.

Felters interpret the story of Sleipnir, the eight-legged horse, with felting and felting:

“In ancient times, after the ice age, a large stream, the Kokemäenjoki, was looking for its course to go down to sea. The water flowed in a flow and strong way through the nutritious land - the land from which the sea escaped and the revealing land gave its best as lush and nutritious. At this time, the Vikings, those fearless, brave, and skilled men from the northern stern, also sailed the seas. On their way, they hit a point where a large stream split into the sea with their eight landing streams. The point reminded them of SLEIPNIR, the eight-legged, powerful and fast horse of Odin, the chief god of that northern deity, on whom Odin rode between heaven and earth. The Vikings named the place SLEIPNIR. Over the millennia, visitors and language changed. In the end, the name took the form of Leineper in the mouths of the Finns who remained in their fields. ”

Leineper Ruukki is a tourist destination for 15 craftsmen / artists, restaurant entrepreneurs, mills, summer theaters and museums at Rautaruukki, founded in 1771 in Ulvila, Finland.

Rabbit paws with needle felting

I made a rabbit paw on my felt board by needle felting. In the video you can see how this process went. This process took me about four hours. The paws are made of Finnish sheep and I added a little merino wool. I made my nails out of plastic. I felted with plain with a felting needle and with a lifting needle.

Felted cord

In the video, I present two ways in which a string could be used.

From Facebook I received the following suggestions:

  • What about such a string basket?
  • How do macrame nodes succeed? 
  • Flower ampule?
  • I have sometimes made a flared tape that weaves a yarn that is much thicker than warp yarns. Could work on this too… 
  • If the braids become a donut and would make a leash for the dog.

On Instagram commented: Dreadlocks and macramé are the first that come to my mind. A macramé top of woolly cord (maybe thinner than what you made here) might look really cool! ”
