To start I apologise for the formatting but no matter how many times I fix it, it changes when I save It. I hope you can read it alright.
Last weekend I taught needle felting to a group of ladies at Just Knitting in Carleton Place Ontario. They were learning the basics by making Easter eggs.
Here they are starting with their core wool. That’s me on the left, in the orange.
Here they’ve covered the eggs in a base colour and they are adding decorations.
Here are four completed eggs
One of the ladies wanted to do a matryoshka doll. She didn’t have time to finish during class so she took some wool home.
Another decided hers looked more like a chick and added a beak and wings.
Two weeks ago I did a wet felted bird house class. I forgot to take pictures during class but did get one at the end of the class. The lady on the right has felted before and brought wool from her flock. It was Rideau Arcott wool. It is a down breed. She knew it might not work the way she wanted but wanted to give it a try. Her bird house didn’t shrink very much and it needs a lot more work to sturdy it up. She ended up putting them through the washer twice and they still haven’t shrunk much or hardened up. It is the nature of this wool. It was an interesting experiment.
