Yesterday I ran my second felt workshop at the lovely venue of Know How You in Beckenham. This time we were making felt corsages. Two of the participants had attended my first workshop for beginners at the same venue, so that was an encouraging sign that I was doing something right!
It was a lovely group, very enthusiastic and creative. After choosing their colours, everyone set to work making a spike and laying out three layers of colour before felting them all together.
Then came the decision about cutting – how many petals and how many edges to finish?
The end result: a very impressive array of exotic felt blooms!
Special mention must go to Amanda’s lemon drizzle and poppyseed cake – it certainly helped the afternoon go with a swing!
Last week was also the deadline for the latest felt swap. The theme this time was “connections”, and my partner was Agnes van der Tier in the Netherlands.
Agnes made me a very clever bracelet, with intertwined cords and pretty hand stitching in lovely shades of blue.
For Agnes I enclosed three small slate paddlestones with felt and joined them together.
Agnes said that her house has a slate roof so it fits in well!
