It was a good idea to have a plan even if it was vague before we started to cut out prefelt and silk fabric!
Jeanette and Alison are lovely tutors who encourage and build the confidence of the students as they progress with their idea. Here Jeanette is giving us ideas on shapes and cutting techniques.
The girls had brought with them some of their amazing knits, hand dyed silks and prefelts which Feltmakers North participants were able to buy to add to their work.
The work was the most varied I have seen at one of our workshops in colour, shape and style, which was an added bonus to all that were there.
Even during lunch Sarah couldnt switch off being creative, look what her sandwich wrapper turned in to!

It was a great day that flew by, full of creativity, fun and friendship what better way could you spend a Saturday in November!
We look forward to seeing you all for our December felt in and Christmas lunch on 13th December, please email Gail if you are attending the lunch
For next month's felt in remember to bring in addition to the normal felting kit, your silk paper and a little merino tops, if you do not have silk paper there will be a little available to buy. You will also need a small piece of resist! Great see you then, take care.
