Classes at the Conference

This last weekend I was teaching at the Ontario Handweavers and Spinners biannual conference. Here are pictures of the Nuno felting class. There where only 3 people in this class. It was a preconference class. The full conference started that evening with the workshops the next day.

Here they are putting the wool around the edges.

Then laying out the pattern.

Fixing a spot that didn’t take. We needled it down and gave it a little rubbing on both sides and it was all fixed.

And the happy ladies with their scarves and a sample done on cotton that they had time to do at the end of class.

At the last minuet the needle felting teacher had to pull out with a family emergency so they asked me to fill in. I didn’t take any pictures of the process we only had 3 hours to complete a project so we really had to move.  Here they are at the end, happy with their projects. Four sheep ( I supplied the legs so they would have time to complete them. ), one pincushion flower and a little person.

All in all it was a great time with lots of friendly people. I will share more about the conference in another post later.

    Well done! Stepping into someone else’s shoes at short notice is no mean feat! 🙂

    • Thanks. It was a bit hairy getting things together and trying to think what they would do. Everyone was very understanding of the situation.

    Looks like they all had fun and learned something. I don’t know how you do much of anything in 3 hours especially on short notice. You go girl! 🙂

    • It was good and there wasn’t much time. I was surprised they got as much done as they did. they did rush. They where supposed to make felted flirts. I had no idea what that was so I brought several simple to make things and told them if they wanted to try something else I would help them with that. It went surprisingly well.
