Yes, yes, I’m still here and have done another indigo workshop!

What a summer!!! I moved at the beginning of August so most of my summer was either getting ready to move or getting sorted out at this end!!! especially moving my studio too!!!
I did manage to sneak an indigo workshop in at ARTicultions in Toronto. As always, a delight to work with these guys and in their space.
Here are some photos of our time and the wonderful results of playing with indigo!!


I have another felting workshop coming up on Oct. 25 at Unwind Yarn House.  Contact them for more information

Spring Felting Workshop in Flesherton!

Ann Wylie-Toal  invited me to her studio in Flesherton (south of Owen Sound) to teach a felting workshop and as usual, such a great group of creative (yes you all are!!!) people! Some had driven all the way from the London area!  You can see by the photos that they worked hard all day and made some wonderful pieces.  Thank you Ann for hosting and participating and thanks to all the people who came and made it a wonderful day!

This last one is Ann being silly after a long day of felting and wearing her tea cozy on her head!

It was a fun day!

Play time at my studio!

For some time I’ve wanted to have some open studio time where people can come and experiment and/or get instruction in different felting techniques.  So I’ve finally be able to plan some time! Hurray!  Saturday Feb. 22 I will have my studio open from 9:30 (I’m not a morning person) till 5 and Tuesday Feb. 25 from 7 till 10.  The cost will be $12 for the evening and $25 for the whole day.  I have supplies here that you can purchase (please let me know if advance so I can make sure I’ve enough), you can bring your own or a combination!  Please let me know first of all, if you’re coming and secondly if you’re hoping to do a nuno felted scarf as I’ll need to plan space.  Hope to see you1

Always something new when you do a workshop!!!

Another bad weather day so an intimate workshop with Cate and Elena.

Image

This is Elena’s first piece before felting

Image

This is it felted – possibly a cushion cover?

Image

Here is Cate’s felted piece

Image

She thinks she’ll make it into a clutch purse – look at that wonderful edge!

Image

For the second project in the afternoon, Elena made a tea cozy and Cate made a hat for a friend’s little one (have to wait for the felt to dry to fold up the brim)

Image

It was a delightfully creative time in the midst of a very snowy day.  Thanks ladies!

Felting Workshop Feb. 1 at Unwind

This is for all you last minute people.  Just a reminder that there are a couple of places still available for the felting workshops I’m doing at Unwind Yarn House on Main Street in Newmarket.  Contact Unwind  http://unwindyarnhouse.com/ for more information or to sign up.  There will be another one March 8 if you miss this one! 

The morning is learning to felt so you will be able to make this cute purse or  another flat felted piece

Image

The afternoon session we will be doing 3 dimensional felting – hats, tea cozies …

Hope to meet you there
