"Unfettered Felt" Workshop.
Conducted at Past Times, Cooma, NSW, Australia, January 2002.

There was something very special indeed about this group of women. After our initial, often moving, introductions the atmosphere changed from a room full of individuals who were strangers, to a room full of good friends! It was a remarkable experience as we shared our stories. This group picture says it all! The day was filled with fun, laughter, (plus a few tears when our hearts were touched, if the truth be known!) and amazing work!

A number of ladies had attended my first workshop, so while other people worked on shapes and flat felt, they explored needlefelting over wire, and experimented with needling a variety of fabrics onto a wool base.

It amazes me how every workshop is totally different, even though I may be teaching the same techniques! There's nothing that gives me greater pleasure than watching people embrace a new skill and literally take themselves off into a fresh and exciting world!

Again, my sincere thanks to the owner of Past Times, Gay Epstein, and her assistant, Linda for their good humour and for all the organizing and promotion of the workshop. I'm just sorry I won't be there for the next one!
