Learning how to make beautiful felted lilies with Asta

 At February's monthly Make and Meet one of our members Asta Gauronskyte very kindly showed us how to make the beautiful felt lilies that she creates. If you were at our Christmas Exhibition you would have seen her beautiful botanically inspired couture on display. (image below) 

 Asta started us off with making the stamen 

She then showed us how to make the 'petal' part of the lily. Asta explained how she had taken apart an actual lily to understand the shapes and form of it, when starting to make them.

You lay out your fibres in the shape of a heart

 They are then wrapped around eachother and felted to completion. You can see some of our finished results below
