Make Horsham felting workshop

Places are still available for this creative workshop on Monday 16th September. Suitable for all skill levels, I will be demonstrating how to wet felt the background of a picture (your choice), then show how to needle felt detail onto the dry felt. This part will have to be done at home when the felt is dry. I will need to have an idea of the picture you are planning so I can supply the colours! The completed picture can be framed or suspended from some dowel.

If you’d like more information please email me knitwitoriginals@gmail.com

Book soon as places are limited!

7.00-9.15pm (2 ¼ hrs) at Brighton Road Baptist Church, Horsham Cost £18.00

Spring Garden and Leisure Show Ardingly 2013

Last years show was one of the wettest on record and was literally a wash out for many of the traders. This year it looks like the sun is paying us visit and I may well need a sunhat & suncream. The East Sussex Guild Weavers,Spinners & Dyers will as usual be demonstrating their skills with members from other local guilds. We will be in a marquee near the alpaca show.Image

I will be there on Sunday demonstrating needle felting and broomstick crochet.

The show is also open on Bank Holiday Monday.

My Best felt vessel and learn how to make your own!

Finally after many attemps I have created a bowl that is actually a bowl and not just a wobbly shape that you can put things in. With many layers of merino wool and a little silk this pretty bowl is hopefully the first of many to be created by these fair hands.
