My sister (Rox) and i went to a felting workshop at PCA today expecting there to be loads of people taking advantage of the free fun and an opportunity to do something that you'd never usually think about doing, to our surprise there was only myself, rox and two young children.
Regardless this kinda meant that we had a bit more attention and time to learn new things, the lady who was doing the workshop was in her last year of an applied arts degree at the univeristy of plymouth and had brought along with her some great felt bags, brooches and wristbands.
We were shown how to make wristbands and also some flower brooches, i made three brooches, two for myself and one as a gift for my friend.
The great thing about this craft is that the results are always different, and sometimes the mistakes you make can have a really effective outcome.
Here are my felt brooches, im really happy with the orange one as i was going for an Autmnal combination of colours and the shape that came out was similar to a leaf.
Here are Rox's creations, two brooches and a flat piece which will be framed.
