Totally utterly fabulous day last Saturday at blue-ginger gallery in Cradley attending a needle felting workshop with the very lovely and oh so wonderful Karin of Celestine and the Hare. Karin took 11 of us through the process of turning woolly stuff into fabulous needle felted creatures using sharp pointy bits of metal :)
Having a fabulous time at felting workshop with Karin and a group of Norty Chokliteers.
We went from this
Karin showing us how to make a tomten and telling us stories while needle felting at the same time!
Part made creature - still no idea what it will be ...
I wonder what I am making?
Lunch break :) The food at blue ginger is excellent, as were the cakes
This is one of Karin's creations :) How fabulous ! A sheepdog :)
Tiger Tim, Victoria Weasel, Betty Sloth Bear and Harriet hug their newest friend.
We all made such lovely creatures at this workshop
Here are our results after less than 6 hours of work
(whispers -we would have done them faster, but we had to chat to each other and laugh a lot and eat delicious food made by Sue and the lovely people at blue ginger gallery and chat and giggle and eat choklit - did I mention I had the most enormous fun day with lovely Karin and the other people attending? )
If you get the chance to go on one of Karin's workshops or to see her demonstrate her art, do go. She is wonderful, as are her creations. And if you have not yet joined us at the most marvellous Tribe of Celestiner Chokliteers go and have a look at her Facebook page :)
and the Hare insisted and so we were not allowed to spend all the time needle felting. ell you, cruel! )
