Wet felted Upholstry Fabric

A thrifted metal chair with a broken seat needed a pick-me-up. The fabric is nuno felted on silk to give it integrity and keep it from stretching too much. The pattern was inspired by an image in the book Gaia Star Mandalas: Ecstatic Visions of the Living Earth by Bonnie Bell and David Todd.


  1. Thanks, Angela. I am sitting on it right now! It turned out to be really comfortable. I think it needs a very thin felted cushion for the back just to balance it visually. Another project!
