Yesterday I had my interview for ‘Craft in the Classroom’ and should get to know on Monday whether I am selected for the project or not. I am really hoping that I will be chosen as one of the participating artists because it would be a great oportunity to work with primary school children and introduce them to the art of feltmaking. On Sunday this weekend I will be having a small stand at a local craft fair so am busy today making some more scarves and putting a few things together that I might need for the day. Because of all the work that I have been doing recently for the 2 exhibitions I don’t actually have a lot of stock lying around. I am not going to worry unduly about selling work but have decided to do a few demos and advertise my felt making classes in addition to displaying work. If anyone is interested in coming along the event takes place from 12pm until 4pm at Boats Bistro on the Carlow side of the river at Tinnahinch, Graiguenamanagh, Co. Kilkenny.
Thank you so much! I wanted to officially wish you the best of luck in getting that teaching position. My fondest memories were of my days as a teacher in America. The students will love learning feltmaking, and you will get such a charge out of seeing their faces when they create something wonderful.
Thank you Dearest Nicola for thinking of me. I am really touched by you adding me to your award list. I love to receive your newsletters and the lovely photo of you and dear Alan. Do give him a hug from me.
All the very best with your projects. I do wish I lived close by and could enjoy being involved.
Loved Anna’s photo too with the bonnie blue necklace in her hair.
Have a really lovely time. The school kids will love to learn about the craft of felts. I can just imagine how delighted they will be.
Hugs and sweet smiles
Well, what a surprise to read today’s entry and find my name as an award winner. Now, that’s a great way to start the day! Thank you Nicola…You’re a dear.
I’ll be keeping my fingers (and toes, too) crossed that you are selected as one of the artists for ‘Craft in the Classroom’. They would be fortunate to have you, and it would be a gift for those children to learn feltmaking from you. I live thousands of miles (and kilometers) from you, but can tell from all the way over here (Michigan), that your enthusiasm for, and love of feltmaking, would be contagious. Why, I’d love to be in your classroom! I thank you for your friendship. Best wishes.
