I want to play with colour and design. I work with wet felting and I want to discipline myself to explore outside the instinctive and habitual. Using inspiration from absolutely anywhere, I will do at least one watercolour postcard sized (or bigger) picture each day, and then at least once a week I will transform the one I find most appealing into a wetfelted item.. bag, hat, slippers, journal cover, etc.



Having made the heads of Papatuanuku and Tawhirimatea, I wondered about moko for them both which meant i looked up lots of sites, trying to work out what were the different protocols and patterns for men and women. This is based on the one worn by the Labour MP Nanaia Mahuta.
