Almost a whole year has sped by and I haven’t been blogging at all. I’ve been busy, just not documenting it. Tsk, tsk. Shame on me! But it’s 2014 and time to turn over a new leaf and get back at this blog. Part of the issue has been that my DSLR has been on the fritz. However, I finally got around to dropping it off at the repair shop so, with a little luck, I will be snapping all my creative pursuits soon.
My 2013 felting adventures were full and rewarding. I taught several classes at BeadFX and I was back at Creativefest in the fall. I am also the proud new owner of a proper studio space. We pulled up our basement carpet and put down an awesome heated cork floor. I appropriated half of the space and built myself a massive felting table. It’s so nice to have a space where I can leave out my “mess” and store all my stuff within arm’s reach. I really enjoy working there. My goal for this year is to figure out a better light system. The basement is above grade and there are two large windows, but I still need some brighter daylight-type light for those grey days.
I been working on refining my felted garment skills. I’ve made a couple of lovely fitted vests and am getting ready to try my hand at a coat!
Felted Cuff Bracelet
A new workshop I’m offering for 2014 is my Felted Cuff Bracelet. The January 25th class at BeadFX is Sold Out! Yeah! So we’ve added another date – April 12th.
I’ll be teaching a Felted Boho Bag class at BeadFX on March 22nd.
I’ll also be offering my Felted Vessel Class at a new location – ArteMbassy in Leaside – on February 21st.
And I promise to take photos at these classes. Stay tuned!
