SUMMER Showcase 2012...

It's been a very busy summer and it's hard to believe that September is just a week away. Thank you to everyone who came along to 'Rosie Ribbons Vintage Fair' on Friday at Bembridge Village Hall. We had an amazing day - it was great to end the summer shows on such a high point, at such a lovely venue. And the live music was a brilliant touch!

The shows are a wonderful way to meet new people who are interested in felt and keen to learn more in the workshops, but it's also very rewarding when my students come back to show me what they've been working on.

I thought I'd just showcase some of the amazing achievements of the summer workshops in this series of photos...


"Painting with Fibres" including some very first pieces...


... some monochrome felt pictures using alpaca fibre...



...lots of soft pots, bowls & bags...



...and hats, scarves, tea cosys, cushions, slippers & kindle cases...

This is only a very small sample. I'm sorry I don't have the space to include everyone's work here, but I must just squeeze in Jacqui's amazing row of cosys taken at Quarr.



There are more workshops coming up in September through to November at Oliven in Newport, at Brading Roman Villa & the Alpaca Farm in Wellow. You can click on the names for more details and to make a booking. A number of the workshops are specifically aimed at ALL abilities, which includes beginners.

For more details about all the workshops at the different venues you can also follow the links in the right-hand column... 


PS. If you live on the mainland and plan to come across to the island to take in a workshop a wonderful new guest house has just opened it's doors in Freshwater Bay...
