Excellent first workshop in Lexington!

After a VERY eventful time of it getting from Grand Rapids to Lexington via Detroit (rain, lightening, tornado warnings so change to flight path and very bumpy flight) I finally arrived safely and happy to get my feet on stable ground once more.  Jan, Bruce and son Kevin live in a really nice green area only ten minutes drive from the airport (just as well since I was so delayed!) and the church, where our workshops are taking place is about 500m from the house, another perfect set up!

Yesterday we had the larger of the two workshops, 11 participants many of whom had extremely limited felting experience, 1 day mostly!  It could have been a stressful experience for all concerned but instead everyone relaxed, concentrated and produced really amazing pieces, an iPad cover, three large bags underway, four flat pieces of felt (two being stitched into purses overnight) and two beautiful large nuno scarves/wraps underway too.  The less experienced felters who made the flat felt pieces are mainly nuno felting or making small vessels today and the experienced and more experienced felters making larger pieces from yesterday are continuing to work on theirs so I am really hoping to have good pictures at the end of the day and share with you all the beautiful pieces made here in KY.

  1. Good morning,

    Well, looking on the bright side…You didn’t have sleet or snow on your GR to Detroit flight;-)

    I’ll bet by now everyone is ecstatic with their beautifully finished felt pieces. Sounds like a great first day…Of course it takes a great teacher to attend to a class that size…Well done;-))

    Hope you have a wonderful day.

    Hugs,
    Dawn

  2. Glad you made it in one piece!!! and after the weather you have encountered on this trip the soft rain of Ireland will be a blessing!! Safe journey –
