Covid Crazy!

Well I am a bit behind in keeping you up to date with my ‘year of covid’ classes. I have been hanging on to try and get my new website online, but alas things are taking a little longer than expected.
So I will try to catch up with a post here about a class I took in April.
I signed up with Nicola Brown of “Clasheen”
https://nicolabrown.ie
I was first introduced to Nicola here in Vancouver a few years back. I took a one day workshop with her, ‘Nuno’ felting a scarf and eco printing onto it all in the same class.

It was the most successful piece I have ever done with ecoprinting.
Here is the scarf from that first workshop.

Nicola is a great teacher and expects the best from her students. She is meticulous with detail and very patient .
So the class was called ‘Eco-Print meets sculptural felt pods, vessels and three dimensional shapes.’
It lasted several weeks and I ended up making a large basket for my knitting projects.

Plus several small flat pieces during my trials.

Small pieces to stitch into.

Sleevelss mitts

I learned a lot about resists and 3D felting as well as eco printing.
I would highly recommend her courses and if you can visit her in Ireland I’m sure that would be even better!
