Felted bead workshop

Hello everyone & Happy New Year! Its 2013 and everything and everyone is a little snowed under!

 Im Vicki and Im hear to tell any of you who didn't make it to the felt in on Saturday what you missed! We had a great turn out despite the snow covered roads. The workshop was taken by the lovely Dorothy who was demonstrating to us how to make swiss roll style beads for necklaces and bracelets.
This technique proved simple and really enjoyable, as I found I could gossip easily while doing it!


 


These were my beads once I cut them up into thick slices.
Dorothy's box of treasures!
 

We were also priveldged to have Marie all the way from America attending the felt in! Marie is an avid crafter and felter and brought with her this beautiul bag that she felted of an Irish landscape.
It was great hearing from her about the different techniques and ideas that she has picked up and filled us full of ideas!

 I hope everyone is staying warm in these snowy conditions and looking forward to the next felt workshop!
Vicki Harvey
