Workshop Sweatshop

I have been recently coaxed off my Mountain to the the beautiful Central Cost to conduct a nuno felting workshop with the very lovely and talented folk there.


We definitely worked up a sweat as the weather was warm and we couldn't have the fans on or the windows and doors open as the fibre would blow away!! This was a day packed with activity as all bent to the task of making a nuno wrap.


I always enjoy the way each work is so different to the next and the students each bring a little bit of their own soul to each creation..

The finished items are all photographed whilst they were still wet so you can't really see the true colours or beautiful lustre and drape, but I'm sure you'll agree they have done some gorgeous work.

Cyber Fibre

The latest hand spun is supposed to be a bit techno. Lots of glitter, wire and glam. It was fun to really plan this one out. Not sure what I should do with it. Perhaps it should be a computer cosy!

More cobweb and handspun


 This piece has been felted with some beautiful mulberry silk top and is the softest thing.It is so fine it can be draped out as a wrap or scrunched up as a scarf.
One of the holes got a bit too large for my liking so I widened it even more and the added the handspun, crocheted piece as a feature and something to poke the end through. Of course then I had to add a few more bits to balance it out.

Spiral Paving

I couldn't wait any more to take pics. We have had the most amazing weather here over the last two weeks. So much rain 400mm in just 8 days I think someone said.!!. I will apologise now to those in South Australia and Victoria, but really it is too much of a good thing. I have been unable to get any sort of  stint of good weather to finish this job. We have had two days of no rain though it supposed to start again tonight. (*#@*) I just want to get the bricks dry enough to put in the jointing sand. Any way you can certainly see how the whole thing looks now so I took the pics anyway.!
I want you to all ooh and aahh over those steps cause they come up the exact right level!!!!! Mr Crowley (My high School Maths teacher ) would have been so proud.
