November Workshop - Felting Three Ways!

Following on from our talk by Julie Turner at our November meeting, (see earlier post), she agreed to run a workshop for us covering lots of aspects of felting. 
Julie brought along items made by herself and others, including a lovely tree/rabbit scene made for her by her daughter Isabel, and also Isabel's wedding bouquet, which you can see on the below photograph. 

Lots of lovely wet-felted pieces made by Julie

First of all we did some 2D needle-felting, making an array of pink and purple flowers

Then we did some 3D needle-felting, making a forest of toadstools.

And a dog.

Julie then taught us her quick and easy way of wet-felting - much quicker and easier than other ways we had tried felting before, many of us made a couple of pieces in the time we had left. If you want to know what method Julie uses, you'll just have to book a workshop with her! 

Below are all the pieces that we made during the workshop - vases of flowers and some beautiful landscapes. 

Julie rounded off the workshop by demonstrating her embellisher and then letting us have a go...
