Sorry I lacked any new posts over the past couple of weeks, it's the silly season you see, which means approximately 2 months of charming chaos!
Nevertheless, here are some recent goings on here at the 'Pot.
Sunday just gone we had a wonderful inaugural workshop in our new space and it went swimmingly! What a lovely day was spent playing with fibre and chatting with new friends.
Felting 101 was our agenda. Learn what felt is, how it works, where it comes from, and the many many wonderful things you can do with it. We made a piece of flat felt, though the creative little gems I had in class that day all put a little 3D effect into their flat felt pieces. Colour me impressed at their chutzpah to just go with what they were feeling, and really imbue that into their artwork.
Here's a snap of their inspired creations:
Next on the agenda is Kid's Yuletide ornaments felt making workshop. We'll do some wet felting, and a little needle felting, and create some traditional icons to adorn our festive homes with.
This takes place on December 21st from 9-Noon. If you'd like to sign your child up just email, comment, or give us a call on 0403 493 111 Generally the kids workshops are best for age 10 and up solo (feel free to still attend if you'd like) or under 10 with an adult helper to accompany.
Felt making, for all ages, but importantly at more tender figures, is a sensory experience that engages and stimulates. For children with sensory integration hurdles, or who are shy or find it hard to connect, felt making is therapeutic and impelling for your child.
They also get to learn a bit about world history, the many animals and plants we use as resources in our societies and how felt is put to use in the global community.
Class sizes are intimate, so each participant receives plenty of one-on-one time and has all their questions answered. If there is any class you are interested in, please sign up right away, as spots are limited and fill quickly.
Next! We will be at the Tamborine Showgrounds Country market this Sunday 8-2. The last big one before December 25th. Drop in and check some names off your list!
