Long Overdue Workshop Images

Hold on everyone, this is a long one. It has been a crazy month, and it's still going strong! I am currently on a bit of a workshop teaching tour, which started at the Appalachian Center for Craft in Smithville, TN with a class called Expressive Feltmaking.  I had a lovely group that was really excited about learning all the possibilities that felt had to offer.  It was a lot of fun to have an entire week to work with the class and watch them explore different aspect of felting that appealed to each of them.

Everyone on the last evening of class.

After leaving the craft center I made my way up to Michigan to visit family, and then made my way to Mackinac Island, where I taught a felting class that focused on Mittens and Slippers.  The weather decided to set the mood, feeling more like fall than the end of summer:

Everyone in the class made a sample swatch and then we dived in to the felted mittens and slippers.
