Felt making courses at Mosman Community College 2015

Here is just a snippet of the wonderful creations that came out of the courses at Mosman Community College last year. Far too many to show all, but you get an idea hopefully of the endless variety and individual expression that found its way out through the fingers and into the wool fibres! A wonderful journey that I enjoyed as much as the students. 
If you would like to learn to explore and express with this extremely diverse medium, follow the link to my courses at Mosman Community College. It's open to anyone, so come along and have fun, surprise yourself!

First course is Felt a woollen scarf and hat or bag. A 2 day course learning the techniques of wet wool felting and explore the wonderful possibilities of this medium. First lesson will be making samples and then a felt scarf or table runner. Second lesson you will learn to create an original felt hat, bag or bowl to take home and amaze your friends. A fun and creative course for complete beginners or those who would like a little more instruction to develop their skills. Come enjoy this fun and beautiful medium that is truly amazing in its diverse possibilities.
Begins Monday 9th February and finishes Monday 16th February. Hurry, places limited.

A creative new year

Belated Happy New Year to you all! I'm following French tradition where you have until the end of January to get all of your social graces done. I hope we all have a peaceful and creative one. 
This is a little friend I found in my dog's paddling pool. It's a leaf tailed gecko. Pretty amazing little creature I thought I'd share with you. It's been a beautiful month of summer holidays with my family here in Sydney, where I switched off the computer and spent time in the garden. I'm refreshed and gearing up for the new exciting year ahead. Wishing you the best. 

This is what we are living on - heirloom tomatoes in abundance- sunshine in your mouth.

Coming very soon, the new season at Mosman Community College. Stay tuned for courses in felt making and eco dyeing.
