What an exciting weekend of workshops with artist Jeanette Sendler and her creative partner Alison Mountain from Big Cat Textiles
& Cat in the Hat https://www.facebook.com/hatinthecatshop/
During the workshop on Saturday participants made wonderful garments using pre-felt, beautiful dyed yarns and knits. Under expert guidance from Jeanette the group made small jackets from templates and decorated the fabrics using the dyed yarns, knits and pre-felts. Norma choose a grey pre-felt background with a magenta knit laid on top. Sharon, Pleasaunce and Ann went for a stunning turquoise background. Sharon laid silk shapes on top of her pre-felt, Pleasaunce choose a foresty dark green knit to lay on top of her pre-felt and Ann used a fresh yellow/green knit to contrast with the background. Helen choose an zingy yellow and burgandy dyed knit on top of her pattern.
