Audrey Pulido - Student Artist

I'm very tardy in posting senior Audrey Pulido's bag from 1st quarter, but better late then never I guess. This was a really labor intensive piece that Audrey, who is a 3rd year 3-d art student, started the year with. I gave her some white blue-faced leicester wool roving that she dyed with food color, and while doing that she learned to spin yarn on the spinning wheel. I then had her spin and ply her dyed roving (all the pink fiber you see in the bag)), then she designed and knit up this bag, needle felted the flower, and lined the entire piece after she washing machine felted it so it would shrink and be stronger. Phew! Lots of work. But look at what she learned and created. Remarkable piece Audrey.
