Well the studio was packed, bags of fiber filled to the gills, and boxes packed with kits for my three classes. I taught Felted Flowers, Felt Fiber Collage and Felted Pouches. I headed down the Interstate for Cromwell Connecticut and was on for three days straight! This course event was a true gem. Very unusual and the producers are indeed angels. Anyone interested in mixed media of fiber, paper and metal should definitely check out this event. The gals who produce it theme it for each year, this year was Taking tea with Alice. Alice in Wonderland. I even designed a felted Tea Cup to teach but in the end that course was canceled, not enough students.
We felted all classes pool side!! Talk about hot and steamy, well - really humid, though by the second day I did run out and buy a skirt and tank top to wear instead of jeans.Our first class Felt Flowers
everyone working on their flowers, we make the bits of felt first, the cut and shape, assemble then bead.Day two was making POUCHES. Fiber is laid out specially, the design is added on the surface the the pile is felted and shaped.
The Fiber Collage Class, the evening between the two day classes was fun too, take a gander at so much imagery and creativity, just a few of the creations:
And some Creativity in action shots!
