Vessels Workshop 12th September

I have been invited to lead a workshop at a wonderful new venue at The Dutch House Crayke near York/Easingwold, North Yorkshire on Sunday 12th September. The workshop will be a bit different in that you will learn two techniques in one day. During the morning we will make a small bag and in the afternoon we will make a small vessel. Cecile of the Dutch House will provide a lovely lunch all included in the price. The workshop is suitable for all levels even if you have never made felt before. This is ideal if you are short of free days as you will leave at the end of the day having acquired two new feltmaking methods.

The day including lunch, refreshments and equipment required during the workshop is £55 with £5 materials cost. If you would like to book a place you can email me.

Woolfest 2010

Getting excited now, setting off soon for Woolfest. Im not anywhere near as prepared as I should be, but whatever happens its always a brilliant two days. Theres so much to see and buy I never quite know where to start and I always seem to miss something. This year I will try to have some sort of route around the stands instead of flitting and missing things. Its great having a stand and its lovely to catch up with people, but its really difficult to snatch time to look around thoroughly. Note to self: drink more water this year! and remember to eat....

The Dutch House Open Day

If you live in North Yorkshire you may like to visit The Dutch House, Crayke, near York on Saturday 19th June. The gardens will be officially opened and then the day will have art and craft stands and demos, music and cafe as well as plant sales. I will have a stand and hope to provide feltmaking demos during the Saturday. Come and say hello if you come along.
