More Collars

Jean ran a Stirling Street Arts Centre Autumn Workshop on making collars recently.  It was a huge success and lots of "none felters" turned up to have a go.

The results were great and Jean's comment was that "she realised what a wonderfully forgiving fibre felt is"!!! 

Well having seen the results of the workshop we think that everyone did wonderfully and showed what an easy fibre felt is to work with.  Look at this wonderful creation by Geraldine Peterkin.

It's decorated with roses - Geraldine's birth flower and very appropriate for an avid gardener (her Ferguson Valley garden will be open again later this year so you can check out her talents).

Thanks for sharing Geraldine, it is lovely.

Thank you to everyone who brought  in their felt creations for our show and talk session.  It is wonderful to see what members have been up to.

This is Vicki's wonderful Tree of Life -

This is how Penny's Japanese scene from last months stained glass felting workshop currently looks -

Penny says it is still a work in progress so we look forward to seeing how it develops as she adds hand stitching to it.

Here is Colleen's beautiful Turkish inspired piece -

And then there seems to have been a butterfly thing happening .

July Meeting

Many thanks to Maureen who gave us a great talk and workshop on felting with alpaca.

Everyone  loved the alpaca tales (no pun intended) and enjoyed experimenting with the wool these gorgeous animals produce.
