we've been talking and dreaming about something like this for so long… and now that we are seperated by a 12-hour-time-differnce (hoops, 13 hours since yesterday because of daylight saving) we just had to do it. it keeps us creatively connected. and so we are inviting you to share this creative journey with us…
This is a fantastical, fun introduction to felting! During the course you will be shown the nitty-gritty of what turns fluffy piles of wool into magical felted goods.
With that knowledge you will be guided to make several variations of felt for our projects: round felt beads, a layered felt flower, a flat felt scarfette and a dimensional felt mobile-phone pouch.
Armed with your new skills you will be ready to felt your little hearts out (warning: felting is higly addictive!) and fall in love with this delicious artform. Even if you have felted before, this workshop is definitley going to have you saying "AH-HA!"
emily falconbridge to me is a true Lebenskuenstler – an artist of life – who can put her hands to anything and turn it into something artistic. that's what she has been doing with felting ever since we met about a year ago and spent time felting and crafting and eating and chatting…
nicole – well, that's me… and as i was saying the other day, i have been seriously into felting for over 13 years because i don't get bored with it!
THE WORKSHOP WILL RUN FROM NOV 26 – DEC 4, on a private section of emily's blog. After registration, participants will be emailed log-in access to the classroom. There will be four core 'lessons' during the course (video and photo format), tips and tricks from the guru, a gallery to share your creations, and two live chats with Nicole and Emily.
You will be able to work at your own pace, downloading the project information at your leisure. The classroom will remain 'open' until the end of 2010.
WOOL KITS are available in my etsy shop with the perfect amount of wool needed for all 4 projects (and yummy colour choices!), or you are free to source your own wool. Other supplies needed for the workshop can be found at home (ie old towel, bubblewrap etc) – a full list will be emailed upon registration.
COST OF CLASS IS $25
