June felt in!

This morning was another very creative and busy morning at Feltmakers North! We were experimenting with adding materials to our felt to see what felted in and what didnt!
 It was good to see some new people who had discovered us at The Creative Stitch Show, in Belfast.
These are samples that I had made which I showed everyone, to give them an idea as to what we were about to do. In these samples I have used synthetic organza, net, several knitting yarns with a variety of types of wool in them, also some ribbons, sari silk and string.
It was very interesting seeing all the different combinations.
Here are some of the finished samples.
At the end of the session we discussed what we had used and how it had felted, I think we all agreed it had been very interesting and some of the textures created were fabulous!
(sorry about this sideways photo dont know how that happened!)
This was our last felt in before the summer, so our next felt in will be in September, keep an eye on the blog, so you dont miss anything. If you are a member dont forget if you would like to take advantage of the great summer 2 day workshop with Nicola Brown of Clasheen, you need to get your application in before 30th June. All applications have to be in by 30th June with a cheque, none will be considered unless this is done. Then on the 30th June a draw will take place, as places are limited, then the lucky members will be notified!
I would like to wish you all a happy felting summer, with good weather and fun, take care and hopefully see you  some of you in August and the rest in September.
