On Saturday we had a workshop using the fabulous wool, silk fabric and fibres from Treetops Colour Harmonies in Australia, as you can see from the photo the colours are amazing and very inspiring!
I did wonder how to approach writing this post, as I was the tutor for the workshop, so I can hardly say it was a great workshop, without sounding big headed! So I decided to write it from the tutor side and then finish off with some comments from the evaluation sheets, to give both points of view!
Here I am giving some instruction before the work commenced, I was so engrossed than I never realised the photo had been taken! The girls in Feltmakers North are great, all so keen and interested, asking good questions which made my job easier! I could tell they were all dying to start, and get their hands on the lovely materials pack that is included in the price of the workshop! We are very lucky in that we get funding from the Island Arts Advisory Committee and the lottery fund, which makes the price of our workshops such good value. We hope this will continue,as we rely heavily on the funding!
The photo above shows my sample scarves!

Some of the comments received after the workshop;
"New technique and idea for scarf which will be worn!!"
"Kit included in price was excellent!"
In conclusion all I can say is that I really enjoyed taking this workshop, the girls were a delight, and I cant wait to see the finished scarves, dry and being worn!
Next Felt in Saturday 15th November, remember to keep checking the workshop section of blog so you don't miss out!
