Wednesday the felting workshop began. Six women joined, all but one had never felted before. First piece was small, to get the idea of how it works, what the fibres do when washed, soaped and rubbed, how to arrange the colours, spacially and for strength of product.
After the small test piece was set aside to dry, everyone started on their main piece. Several landscapes began to form, a 3D cave, a floer arrangement and a hat.
Two very dear friends, one from Kingston one from Halifax, have joined me here this week, both to take part in the workshop and sharing my space. It is like one long happy sleepover.
Picture of beach is taken at Advocate harbour with view if Isle Haute towards the west.
