Primary school feltmaking project

Here is a school feltmaking project I am working on at my children's school. This is year 3, the subject is 'minibeasts'. Gotta love that.
They are gleefully learning to draw with coloured merino wool. A new medium to delight little fingers.

They then enjoyed getting wet and soapy... 

and next they will be felted together into one large piece. Lots of rolling by enthusiastic kids, coming up....

What's keeping me warm this winter

This is my nuno and wool felt jacket I have refashioned from two of my previous creations, coming up with a warmer yummy item I am very much enjoying wearing at the moment here in Sydney!

I've gone soft, Sydney winter is indeed very gentle compared to France, but gee those mornings feel chilly!

PS, next one day Eco dye workshop is at Mosman Community College on Monday the 25th August 2014. A few places are still available, so follow this link to book.
