I mentioned in my last post I was taking part in a felting workshop at the weekend, well I had such a great time! It was a two hour workshop in my hometown of Tralee at Craft Makers which has just recently opened, it's a beautiful building with a craft shop on the ground floor and workshop space upstairs. We did some sculptural needle felting, I made this little bird ornament and finished him off at home with some beads!
We also learned how to do wet felting and made some Christmas baubles. It was great to try both wet and dry felting, they're both so completely different. I couldn't pick one over the other!
I just loved how tactile the whole process was and I've already ordered some materials so I can do some more! I'm only just getting familiar with all the different types of wool you can get but I do like the slightly more coarse wool. Can't wait to visit Kerry Woolen Mills!
That's all for now, I'm just finishing off my Christmas cards. I did some lino cutting for my card this year, will share in my next post! Hope you're nearly ready for Christmas, I still have some shopping to do! : )
