I am proud to introduce my newest venture open for business!
I will be opening my home as a studio to teach the art of felt making.
I have been making wool felt for about 15 years now. A really long time! My mother taught me when I was young and I have taught several people over the years. My mum is still a teacher and is known quite well (in Australia) for her felt designs and creativity.
With wool felt, the sky is the limit.
You can make flat pieces to display on the wall, framed, as table runners or place mats, felt cushions or pillow covers, bags, hats, scarves, mittens, slippers, toys, balls, bowls, dolls, blankets, door mats, poncho's, brooches, etc etc etc.
I will provide all the high quality supplies, the instruction and cheerleading, light refreshments and the space in which to create something gorgeous and truly one-of-a-kind.
The items you give life to would make wonderful presents for the upcoming gifting season. Everyone loves a homemade, heartfelt offering.
You will also walk away with a new found skill that you are able to put to use for the rest of your life.
My first workshop will be Nuno felted scarves. These are gorgeous wool-on-silk scarves.
Price is $50 per person. Most workshops last between 3 and 5 hours (when you are done you're welcome to stay or leave). I ask for a $10 deposit to reserve your spot. I am able to take 4 people for this particular workshop due to the space needed for a scarf.
Children are unfortunately unable to attend this particular workshop but there will be child-centered workshops offered in the near future!
Date is Saturday August 29th 9am-2pm (or until finished).

More workshops in the very near future!
Please feel free to spread the word and tell anyone you might think would be interested!
Here are some recent pictures of felt scarves to whet your appetite!
