I had a HUGE day yesterday. I was engaged to teach 41 year 9, 10 and 11 girls how to felt. I’ve done it twice before and know how enthusiastic (and boisterous) the girls are. I love doing it because it’s impossible to guess what results we will see at the end of the day. I teach the basics, I give them some general subject ideas and off they go and design their own project.
Firstly I had to create my own sample as a size and colour guide. I made a simple landscape with a flower in the foreground.
My flowers have disappeared into the background a bit so I’m now adding some hand-stitching to bring them back to life.
The girls had a great time, working in groups and encouraging each other they started by dry felting some components before adding them to their backgrounds.
