For the classic round pom pom, I found the technique I learnt in primary school still works the best- two circles of card, or similar, with a hole in the middle- my experiments with commercially available 'pom pom makers' made shaggy or slightly rectangular pom poms.
Now what to do with a room full of pom poms??
I am a textile artist based in Melbourne Australia. In another life, I ran a florist shop "Rare Petals". Both crafts take some inspiration from ancient Japanese techniques- my flower shop concentrated on ikebana, and my current craft practice explores shibori, in particular on knitted felt.
