The inspiration for my cuffs stems from a desire to use up scraps of material. Much of my handmade felt incorporates my nuno prefelts. As a result, I accumulate baskets of offcuts. I also love to stitch and enjoy having something to do with my hands at the end of the day.

Cuffs are now one of my favourite things to make. I wear them regularly and like to give them as gifts to friends. Each cuff feels like a little piece of abstract art, built up with multiple layers of wool, silk and stitch. 

Day I -Introduction to the project -Introduction to tools and materials -Making nuno prefelt -Learning the proper layout of fibers -Silk selection -Rubbing and rolling to fuse the silk and wool

Day 2 -Cutting the cuff base and pieces for the closure out of prefelt -Creating three dimensional elements for the closure -Surface Design -Felting the cuff -Shaping and finishing touches

Christianna Ferguson

Christianna takes the most simple of materials, wool, soap and water and transforms them into bold, unique and often complex textiles. Through the physical act of making felt her curiosity is continually sparked to explore the medium in new ways. Her work ranges from wearable pieces and costumes to fine art, wall hangings and sculptural pieces. Often her work incorporates silk and three dimensional elements to enhance her individual surface designs. Teaching and creating community through the arts are also a meaningful part of her full-time studio practice in the village of Lakefield Ontario.
