I had a wonderful time during the second week at Dominio Vale do Mondego in Portugal. Different participants plus other non felting visitors on retreat (with the exception of Naomi who took part both weeks!) gave a different dynamic and it was really interesting to watch a totally different body of felt and natural prints emerge. Here are some images to give you a flavour of what we got up to, I hope that you enjoy them! Bye, bye Portugal, see you at the same time, same place next year, details of our next extravaganza will be posted online within the next week or so!!!
Thanks Jan for once again organising a brilliant two day felt and natural printing workshop in Lexington, it was fun catching up with old friends and lovely to make some new ones too! I'm going to post a bunch of pictures below sharing some of the amazing work created, before I sign off though I'd like to remind you that if you'd like to join me in Portugal for a fab residential felting holiday one person has had to cancel the first week (due to health reasons unfortunately) and there is still some availability for the second week that we added recently. Please contact Karin ASAP at Dominio vale do Mondego to book a place of ask any questions, it will be a magical time!!!
Now on to those pictures………
As promised, here's the link to the newly added second week residential felting extravaganza at Dominio Vale do Mondego in Portugal this June. I've also updated the workshop page here on the website to reflect everything that is happening over the next few months, currently I'm planning a trip to teach in Canada again this Autumn so if you're interested please shout out loud now and email me. I don't plan an instant reply (with my impending trip to Texas, California, Michigan and Kentucky happening this week it's full steam ahead as usual at Clasheen) but I do promise to respond as soon as my feet hit the ground!!!
I'm really excited to announce that Karin, Eelco and I made the decision yesterday to add a second residential felting extravaganza week at Dominio a Vale do Mondego in Portugal this June!!!
