Advent Felting at the Parish Room

A lovely day again at the Parish Room in Shipley, making all sorts of Advent inspired feltness's....I appear to have been talking far too much today and lost the ability to find the appropriate word at the appropriate time!

June's VERY FIRST felting piece, a colourful wall hanging

Right at the top is a picture of Ornela's beautiful tree. Several of the pieces today contained little secret pockets to pop little advent treats inside - including this tree. By adding little pieces of resist, today we used cut up squares of polythene and an old Ikea bag - little pockets were formed in the felt.

Here's June, opening the pockets...

Posted by PicasaWe had a full day, punctuated as always by tea, coffee and delicious homemade cakes. Not to mention a lovely lunch to help us recharge the old batteries and give us the strength to give some welly to the felting process in the afternoon. Everyone was really chuffed with what they made, thats the beauty of this wonderful method.. there's a real sense of achievement when all is done and a beautiful piece completed. Thanks , to all those who came and made it a lovely day. It was a privilege to be part of it.
