The sample prefelts are rolling in and a big thank you to all those who left bundles into the Village Centre over the last while.
|the ideas keep on rolling in!|
Deirdre, Helen and Deborah have been meeting regularly to work on the project in preparation for the community workshops in November at the Island Art Centre as part of the Island's 'Festival of Felting'.
|Deborah there in spirit!|
We've all been encouraged to consider various ways of depicting the essential and meaningful aspects of life in the Borough and yesterday saw yet more super ideas with members taking responsibility for developing various aspects of the hanging.
Helen and Deirdre demonstrated yet more techniques to add texture and surface embellishment together with 3d effects.
There's been great inspiration around and we all think this is a super way to work together learning and developing ideas together.
There was still time in our morning session to do a little Show n Tell when we saw some lovely pieces created by members. Mandy had perfected two little bowls which were incredibly smooth and even. Jane shared a book of sample wools which she is making as part of her IFA accredited feltmaking course and we saw Patricia's wonderful cobweb scarf.
Lots of us had been at Jenny Pepper's workshop a fortnight ago and our creatures were definitely holding their own!
Do please continue making little prefelts for the project and if you can't make our November Felt-in, drop them off at the Village Centre.
Finally don't forget that alongside the Community Arts Project, there will be a small exhibition of pieces made by Feltmakers North, so get your thinking caps on for what you would like to contribute.
Bye for now guys!
