So the other Saturday saw me heading to tutor another workshop, and as I said in the title, it was my sixth. How lucky am I to have filled six workshops? when I set out I had no idea if I would get one student!
I took a picture of the lovely room we work in before everyone arrived. It is light and spacious. The tables are superb, they are three feet square and it is one per person. I would not want anyone to feel cramped. I do have a bit of a workout at the beginning of the day, dragging six of them together! Take a look how I had to tape the large plastic sheeting around the table leg in case anyone tripped on it as it flapped around the edges somewhat. I have to do a risk assessment at the start of the workshop to cover myself, telling people that scissors are sharp and not to put the soap in their mouths, I kid you not….
So let’s just dive into the pictures of the day.
I hope you agree with me that these ladies were a talented bunch! They were a joy to teach, and as usual we had a lot of laughs. I soon get the measure of people and if I think they are up for a bit of banter, then game on! At the end of the day, we are there to have a fun time and play with wool!
Additionally, I was asked by two of the workshop ladies, now friends, to teach them how to free motion sew the pieces made at the workshop. This happened recently, just a two hour class, and all went well, and they went away happy with their new knowledge.
