Check out my workshop pages for 2015 feltmaking workshops including a fabulous summer school with Mandy Pattullo and a special exploration of British wools. Other workshops include opportunities to make hats, slippers, lampshades, peg loomed rugs. Workshops are at my Weardale, North Pennines smallholding, or The Hearth at Horsley, Northumberland.
This weekend at The Hearth Arts Centre I'll have my studio open for the Open Studios and Winter Fair, 22nd and 23rd November. I'll have all sorts of woolly goodies to delight you and on the Sunday I'll be taking a couple of my sheep!
All the wonderful Hearth artists will have their studios open that weekend - too many to mention them all, but they include Mandy Pattullo, Jill Stewart and Kim Lewis. We also have wonderful guest exhibitors including Mark Rowney, Kate Jackson and Oakwood Soaperie.
Hope you can make it!
NEW ADDITIONAL date for felt slipper workshop, 13th December at the Hearth, Horsley, NE15 0NT. Check my feltmaking workshops pages for details.
Also, there's an additional Hat workshop date, which I forgot to add! It's the 28th November, also at the Hearth, Horsley. Again, check workshop pages for details!
Well here's the photo I promised. Just a few of the things awaiting my attention. All in need of finishing.
If only this was the tip of the iceberg. Unfortunately this constitutes barely a peck on the tip of the iceberg of things I need to do in the next 36 hours before I head off to set up my stand at Yarndale.
I'm working my socks off getting ready for Yarndale. I'll be taking lots of everything you could possibly imagine, so do come along! Apparently I'm at stand 11.
Currently I have an enormous pile of "unfinished" things awaiting my attention. I suppose I should post a photo of some of the things, but I seem only to have photos of sheep! I'll try tomorrow.
It's been a busy summer preparing for the Horsley Wool Fair and now that it's over there's no rest for the wicked - Yarndale is looming! The summer also saw us joined by new additions to the flock - Horsley, Eric, Minkie and another, as yet, unnamed pair - all very lovely! Horsley has become a mascot for the Hearth artists and has his own website!
There are fantastic prizes to be won at Horsley Wool Fair. Visit the competition page for details and get making!
