Earlier this week I finished the corset I've been working on for what seems like an eternity. It's now in Wales, along with the other contributions to the Organic Wool Wales project, and will be exhibited at Wonderwool next weekend. Phew! pleased that's done!
Back to other work now and I have dates for monthly half-day feltmaking workshops in Hexham on my website. The dates are 5th May, 2nd June, 7th July and full details can be found here, but the first is an in-depth exploration of wool types.
Details of various full day workshops at my smallholding can be found here.
For any of you that don't follow my Facebook page, I'm running a competition to win some carded local wool sliver - these will, of course, be the sort of wools you'll not be able to get hold of anywhere else. There'll be between 30 g and 50 g of several types. So take a look for your chance to win 200g of heaven!
I am a feltmaker, living with my family on a smallholding in the beautiful North Pennines, from where we run environmental workshops and, as far as we know, the only off-grid Bed and Breakfast in England.
