Mouzon Felt Making Museum

This was a wonderful trip I made with my family this summer. The museum of felt making is well worth a trip if you're near the Belgian border. It's in the same town as a factory that also produces industrial felt, one of the last of its kind. Enjoy

Nuno Chandelier

I finally finished this piece. It has been a joy to make from silk and merino fibres. The diameter is 90 cm and it will be lit with 3 strong bulbs - so the effect should be like stained glass. It's very festive !
