Ruffle scarf workshop

Pictures from the ruffle scarf workshop last weekend. The lighting wasn’t the best and the scarves are a little less lively than they will be when they’re dry but delightful all the same.

This was Mandy’s first ever piece of felt, The workshop was a Christmas gift from her husband, didn’t he do well?  Mandy did really well too and was so excited by the whole felt making process that she’s hooked.

Lisa is a self taught feltmaker and despite an early hiccup with the scarf, overcame her difficulty and finished it beautifully. Such a shame that the colour isn’t better on this shot.

Sheila is a more experienced felter and chose to create her scarf with a double ruffle. They’ve all turned out really well.

Ruffle Scarf Workshop

A week on Saturday the 27th February I’ll be running the ruffle scarf workshop. Due to illness, I now have a couple of spaces available if anyone is interested. Perhaps you’d like to see what you’d be making?

First sample is this scarf which I blogged about here

I loved this one with the double ruffle and subtle grey and white colouring but yearned for something with a touch more colour.

Black Merino with fiery red/oranges on the edge and down the cnetre.

I experimented by including some spots of pre-felt. If you saw my spotty table runner you’ll know I cut a lot of prefelt circles so have plenty to play with on future projects.

Photos have been a few days in the waiting as it was sunny when the scarf was wet and wet when the scarf was dry!

Depending on how quickly you lay out you’ll be able to make a single or double ruffle scarf. Details and booking on my workshop page

Ruffle scarf

I finished this scarf over a week ago but just haven’t had the time to show it to you. There are two layers of ruffles in Merino wool and I’m quite pleased with how it turned out. In fact, I’m very pleased with the colour combo of natural and dark slate (from Adelaide Walker).

There’s just something about this that makes my heart sing, watch out for more of them appearing soon and don’t forget, you can make one in the workshop I’ll be running next February.
