Getting Ready For 'Bovey'

Getting ready for 'Bovey' aka the Contemporary Craft Fair where I'm running two workshops on Friday.  And its going to be HOT - take lots of water - maybe a thermos of ice...

So this is pre-felt merino all cut into squares ready to be packed into goody bags.  Felted quilt weaving workshop on FRiday afternoon uses this to make a 'mug rug'.

On the Friday morning will be running a nuno felt-making workshop - here is my sample..

Nearly a disaster as used some of the white pre-felt for the circles and feeling impatient plus the silk voil is quite tightly woven so making the felting a bit more tricky - only one felted!  Like the combination of the 'bumble bee' blend (from World of Wool) on white.  Always good to try out ideas before the workshop...

Looking forward to the preview as students from two of my classes have work in the 'Art of Learning'  exhibition.
