Weaving through the trees, first images of felt bag and Wikio ranking

Day two saw everyone moving to the Feltmakers Ireland studio in Phoenix Park for the morning session before heading back to Collins Barracks for the afternoon.  Logistically this meant that we needed to bring all our relevant materials plus our work from day one with us. Because I had worked and felted my bag the previous evening I was free to start developing my theme further as well as have some time to absorb all we learnt on the first day.  Annette had asked friend and workshop helper Cristina to bring some balls of cheap yarn with her and we started the day by having a fun session weaving the yarn through the trees.  For anyone not familiar with Phoenix Park it is the largest park in a Capital city in Europe so we had plenty of trees to choose from!!!

Jeanette suggested that we either allow ourselves to  get lost in the weaving and just enjoy the moment or else contemplate the different ways we were all connecting and how the many strands ultimately conntected and became one big web.  Needless to say this was great fun!

Today I am going to show you two detailed images of my bag, the full bag will be revealed in the next post.

  1. congratualtions and you certainly deserve it. I’m greatly impressed by the keyhole pics of your bag: can hardly wait till you will reveal the rest of it.

  2. like the way how you all were weaved together – this is a mental thing – bringing people together and moving together will shift some brains up to an energic level (do I explain myself clear?) Your bag is gonna be a very special one – very original to have the roses insides and have a sneak preview from the outside.

Please comment if you feel like it, I love the interactive nature of my blog!
