Today I taught a felting workshop at the Pegg Garden … it was a load of fun!
These lovely artists created felted vases … so many different colours!
I did a quick intro, then worked on a demo vase while everyone had lunch … it was like dinner theatre but with soap and water and wool. (Mine’s the one on the far right with the thistle on it.) Everyone started their creations after seeing how it was done, and we had a lot of fun seeing everyone’s felting take shape. It starts out as this weird lump of soggy wool, and ends up as a shaped vase that stands up on it’s own!
Look, this one is shaped like a pitcher.
My parents are here visiting from Ontario, and my mom came to the workshop with me today, which was really awesome. She arranged all the sample vases with flowers and greenery … the County Horticuluralist, Lorraine (on the right) cut the greens and Mom (on the left) did all the arrangements.
Look how pretty they are!
It was really fun.
When I came home, Dad and The Boy had been cutting deadwood out back – more firewood for winter, and less of a mess in the back!
Look at all that!
What a lovely day.
