I wanted to attend a felting workshop there and dive into a weekend full off sheep and wool.
Everyone was asking me why I wanted to attend a felting workshop since I've been felting for over 15 years, but it is always inspiring to see other teachers how they do things differently and how they teach. Plus I do not have much experience in felting with merino roving. With my figures I use short fibers as in merino bat. It would be a hassle building these figures with merino roving.
I just use it for their hair or as a finishing touch.
So I really had fun learning that to felt a bag with merino roving is not such a difficult and long lasting thing than I thought it would be. Cynthia Mollenkopf from artifelts was a wonderful teacher.
I definitely going to be back next year. Here are some impressions:
Beautiful Hudson Valley!
Sheep getting ready for the show!
Even with a blow dryer :)
This sugar maple tree is so gorgeous!
This is the bag I made in the workshop!
I entered in the competition for small wet felted item.
