The felting workshops have been a joy to teach. The participants are always really enthusiastic and we have a lot of fun around the kitchen table. I recently had a fantastic group of ladies who brought their mother for her birthday, she was in her 80s and bright as a button. She was full of stories about how they used to dispatch their chickens and even offered to demonstrate her technique but I didn't have any ready 'to go' at the time! Of course nothing of what we do here at Sallygardens in our bid to live sustainably hasn't been done before and there's a lot of useful knowledge out there for us beginners amongst people who have done it all their lives. Finding that information can be very difficult and then sometimes it arrives at the kitchen table without me even looking.
One of the most fulfilling parts of the felting workshops for me is to see the wonderful array of creations made by the participants, they really are inspiring. So here are a few from a couple of recent workshops to share with you (with full permission from the creators themselves!). The next felting workshop will be on Saturday 12th July 10am till 12.30, please leave a comment on this post or email me to book a place.
