I have been fortunate enough to be one of the names drawn out of the hat to attend a Jeanette Sendler felting workshop this weekend! Organised by Feltmakers Ireland this is an exciting opportunity to learn how Jeannette works and explore the topic ‘Fibre, felt and nostalgia’ To grasp an idea of what we will be covering you can check out this post on the Feltmakers Ireland blog. I promise to report back about how the weekend went on Monday afternoon, no computer coverage until I get back to Carlow! This afternoon I am going to try and ‘tame’ my kitchen and get a few loads of washing dry before assembling all my materials in preparation for travelling tomorrow. Not sure yet what memory filled item I am going to bring with me to the workshop but hopefully it will hit me as I start to put all my pieces together.
PS In case any of you are wondering Rex will be very well looked after by his old owner’s niece who here on a holiday for approx 10 days, perfect timing!!
Oh you are so going to enjoy this workshop.worked with Jeanette at Glaramara and her work is beautiful and thought provoking,enjoy
OMD. Greeeeen with envy. I can’t wait to read about it. I hope you have the best time.
Good morning Nicola,
Wow! What a gift to be able to attend Jeanette’s workshop. I just read the Feltmakers Ireland blog post and the workshop sounds marvelous. I am especially intrigued by the inclusion of old photos/letters into felt pieces. Can’t wait to hear your report on Monday. Sounds like it’s going to be a great weekend for both you and Rex:-)
Hope your kitchen taming went well.
Oh my gosh! I am so excited for you. I actually have a folder on my computer that says Scotland with her site in it. I so want to take a hat workshop with her. I have been including vintage doilies and dresser scarves in my felt and now…photos…other trinkets… and have been toying with carving blocks to print my designs on the felt. Sounds way intriguing and can wait to see what you do…. Rosie
Have fun hun!
