I always look forward to workshops, to seeing what people make but, on the day, some workshops seem to have a really good feel about them that makes them stick in your mind as a good one. This workshop was one of those, great atmosphere and I just loved what people made. It’s a fab feeling to think I helped them to achieve such brilliant results, especially as two were new to felt making.
Unusually, I took a couple of shots during the laying out process and the one below is my absolute favourite, so pretty.
In the flesh it looked like a most delicious cake! The monotone below also caught my attention., I was drawn to it’s curly exuberance.
I just had to show you this one again, finished, with the lace on the bottom which reminded me of a potters’ mark.
And a full frontal of it!
The next two were made by new felt makers and, for me, the red one has a romantic feel, love the vibe.
What can I say, purple and orange are one of my favourite colour combinations, I was always going to love this.
It’s hard to believe at times that every one of these pots came off the same shape resist. It’s about where you cut and how you shape. This next one really did have the feel of an underwater scene so scalloping the opening was perfect.
The ‘cake’ somehow became less cake and more vintage as it was felted and the plain white second opening really helps to set it off.
Sadly people weren’t willing to leave their creations with me 🙁 I guess I’ll have to make my own.
