FABRIC CRAFTS have been busy since the lockdown. Karen has set challenges and we have all been very keen to accept. The most recent challenge was to do some weaving using whatever we could find in and around our homes. The results can be seen on the right hand side.
We have also been using Zoom, where Karen demonstrated ( brilliantly) the technique of Wet Felting. Pictures to follow.
FABRIC CRAFTS - Fortnightly Monday mornings- starting Monday 3rd February- WE ARE NOW LIVE!
Want to learn a new craft, or share your knowledge with others, then FABRIC CRAFTS is launching to help you do it!
We will start with felting, both needlefelt and wet felting. We will learn together and also be shown by those with the knowledge and previous experience.
WHEN - Monday morning 10 - 12 a.m
WHERE - Karen’s home in Torteval, in her work room.
We have made room for 12 of us!! bit of a squueze but in the summer we can be on the terrace outside. If demand continues, we may do a second group.
I have lots of materials etc and ideas to get us started then its up to the group to decide where it goes from there.
Access to a sewing machine, fabric!( what a stash I have!) and wool and roving. TV for Utube when needed!
The first week will be to make a needlecraft picture to take away. Foam block will be provided and needles(Cost £5), so you dont need to bring anything the first week ( unless you have needlefelting kit , then bring it along).
if your interested, email Karen via the pigeon.
The first week was Monday 3rd February. So email soon to secure your place!
Next sessions fortnightly thereafter will be 17 Feb, 2nd March, 16 March, 30th March. extra sessions on intervening Mondays by arrangement to cover holidays etc.
