Felting Class

On March 14 I taught my first felting class. I decided that my goals were verrrrry ambitous! I wanted to complete a journal cover in 4 hours and alloted 2 hours with explaining the felting process, making a pattern and laying out the wool and 2 hours in the felting process. Well, the whole class ran 2 and 1/2 hours longer than I planned. Not the end of the world!! Everyone did finish their project which was my ultimate goal and it all ended up well. I think my students (4 total) were pleased and the projects did turn out very nice. The covers were very colorful and so varied in their appearances. Here are some photos:

Midwest Felting Symposium

Today I received an e-mail that the class schedule is up and running on the Midwest Felting Symposium website! I looked through it and I really don't see how I'm going to be in several classes at once. I am just going to have to decide on a couple of classes. Its so exciting to be able to learn from so many teachers and then I know that each of my fellow students will be full of ideas too.

If You Are in NYC -- Felt Exhibit at the Cooper-Hewitt museum!!

March 6 through Sept 7 at the Cooper-Hewitt museum. Fashioning Felt. A celebration of the material with jewelry, rugs, vessels, upholstery and apparel. Wish I could go. Here's the blog about the exhibit.
