This is a busy & exciting week for me!
Thursday I am working in my local primary school on a felting workshop. The teacher was so impressed with Rachaels felted gifts last term that she JUMPED at the offer of a felting workshop. Year 5/6 have an `under the sea` topic this term, so we are going to felt sea creatures, using blue, green & yellow; the FeltUnited 2010 colours. I shall assemble them (at home) into a mobile. Im hoping to exhibit the finished piece at Haden Hill House, the closest of our local museum buildings, on Sat 2nd October... we are just sorting out the logistics of exactly where it can hang; Im really hoping that works out, I think it would be a big boost for the kids to have their work publicly exhibited.
Saturday 25th is the charity day on the farm (details on the right) I am SO looking forward to this. It sounds like a lot of fun & if the sun shines for us it will be wonderful! Anybody in the Midlands area, if you fancy an afternoon out why not drop by? If you do please introduce yourself, be nice to meet you. Im doing a very simple felt workshop there... using some of the farms jacob fleece to felt beeds. Im thinking if folks felt 1, or as many as they want, I can string them onto ribbon & they can wear it home as a bracelet... or whatever. Might take a little colourful Icelandic wool too... just incase. Clare is going to be spinning, so it should be a nice afternoon submerged in wooly farmy wholesome goodness :)
AND I have to ship my Peacefelt to my lovely PeacePartner Sam... I shall post about that next time...
