Welcome to 2015! What lovely plans have you set for yourself this
Hopefully some time to create some magnificent felt works!
I am in for another busy year - how lucky for me that there are so many
people wanting to take some felt classes. This year I will be
travelling to Berry (NSW) East Kempsey (NSW) The Whitsundays again,
Canberra (NSW), Bendigo (VIC) and for the first time I will be going to
New Zealand to do several workshops.
Here at home in the studio, I will be teaching the
following classes over the next few months. Something new in April I will be holding a "FELT
INTENSIVE" 4 straight days of felting with a different technique
Dates start really soon so I look forward to hearing from you!
Beginners Felt If you are ready to dip your toe in the wool then don't

Collage Birds continues to be so popular it is amazing how many

Patchwork Felt. This is a
series of 4 workshops. Understanding colour and pattern will be the
prime focus and how to achieve a stunning piece of wall art will be our
goal. Perfect for the beginner or more advanced student. For two weeks
we will create a variety of patterned felts. By week 3 we will arrange
and piece them all together so they are ready to be felted in Week 4.
These pieces are quite large so class size will be limited to 3
Felt Folio 1 must surely be my most popular class. Now into its'
13th year (golly!) it runs for 5 weeks with a new felting technique
each week. Felto Folios 2 and 3 can also be scheduled after number 1
has been completed.
Square Heads - A fun class
to introduce you to the gorgeous qualities of watercolour crayons and
sketching. These little heads are great to add to journal covers, art
quils, bags, cushions.....
Papier Mache and Felt - A
three week class in mixed media. We create heads and limbs in papier
mache and then a customised felt body. By week 3 we put it all together
for a truly unique sculpture!
