may felting fun

A month rolls around very fast and before I know it its time for the Tassie Felters get together. This month Niki showed us how to make felted braclets. And then we had some show and tell. Lesley models Jaquelline's wonderful dress.

More lovelyness made by Jaquelline. Just what we need as the weather turns colder.

These birds adorn the dress above. They are just lovely.

saori workshop fun

On the weekend 12 luck weavers had a weekend workshop with Kaz Madigan. She is a saori weaving teacher, saori is a type of freeform japanese weaving. It was so much fun as we got to use all types of different yarns, we were allowed to break weaving rules and focus much more on the createing rather than the preciseness of the work. Here are some of the pieces created by the group.

And here is Kaz, nice and cozy next to the fire.

Di presented Joy with a lovely bunch of flowers for letting us all use her wonderful studio space at Nandroya studios and vineyard in Margate. It is always a pleasure to have a workshop in such beautiful surrounding and with a treasure like Joy as the host.
