This board of imaginative wet felting was created by the students of the Special Education Centre of Henry Kendall High School.  Some of our members assisted the students in learning wet felting.  Quite a strenuous task.  The students were quite pleased with their colourful results.


Owl Felting Workshop

On Saturday 29 February Julie held a needle felting workshop.  Attendees were treated to the skills and guidance of an expert owl designer .  She guided them through and provided a kit so that they finished the day with a pretty stylish looking owl.  Extra information and more photos can be seen in our March 2020 addition of our Newsletter. Well done Julie and well done ladies!

Creative Felting

Our creative artist Julie, has been busy making an owl family.  When she has finished, it is rumoured she will call them Who, What, Where, When and Why.  The little white owl appears to be having a bad hair day.

Felting Workshop

What a wonderful day we all had at the cottage today. There was six of us attending the Nuno Felting workshop with the very talented Carolyn Kohler. Everyone went home very happy with their wrap and they were all so different but all looked just amazing. I asked the ladies to share their thoughts on the workshop and here is what they had to say …
* Marvellous workshop with a patient and talented tutor.
* I am so thrilled with the skills I have learnt today and so proud of my piece.
*Thank you so much Carolyn for a wonderful day, your calmness and encouragement was invaluable.
*I am thrilled with my Shawl and am In awe of the wonderful creations you guided us all to produce. This was an unforgettable day and the start of a whole new fibre adventure for me.
Carolyn has promised to come back next year to do another workshop for those who were interested but unable to attend today.

Our Felting Workshops have been in full swing. The first on 8th February was attended by ten people. This workshop was full and everyone made a hat or bag. This method was to allow the person felting to see how to wet felt over a template, fold over and finally remove the insert after the rolling procedure and begin the fulling. Debbie, Bel, Sukrita, Faye, Donna, Rhonda, Maggie, Laura and Connie got stuck into it and Katie came along to check it all out. Everyone participated in it and enjoyed the outcome of their accessories. Some then had a second go with a nuno felted scarf. There was no stopping them. Thanks to Gay for helping me as this was a full on day for all.

The second on 15th February was another very successful day with another eleven to do the felting. We were overfull, however we coped. Thanks to Sandra for coming along and making a cuppa for Lyn. We had thirteen but sadly Katie and Sukrita were sick and unable to come. My helper, Bev, had a fall and went to hospital for a replacement hip (what a way to get out of helping on the day). So it was certainly full on. Rachael (a newcomer), Erica, Debbie, Rhonda, Maggie and Carol all made hats. Every hat is different and fabulous. Donna decided to make a child’s hat and it is perfect. Kathryn and Bee each made a bag. Faye did a nuno felted scarf. Bee then decided to give Nuno a go and made a beautiful scarf. Thanks to all for helping in the clean up. I really appreciated it. Thanks to all who participated and your enjoyment made it all worth while.
