I had the great pleasure of spending the day with these accomplished ladies. We spent a perfect Spring day outside learning to Basket coil. First time coilers, they all nearly completed their baskets in one day!

So I am part of the Botanical Bazaar in August this year and decided to make one of their signature butterflies.
I had the brilliant idea to wet felt it not realizing the size!
It has taken awhile to work out logistics and upsize everything but I now have a huge butterfly resist, 3kg of wool tops from Fibre Arts Shed, some ribbons, sparkle and pre-felts.
Wish me luck ๐Ÿ˜…

On Saturday afternoon I had the great pleasure of becoming a student again and learning the first steps of crochet with our delightful guest teacher, Krishna Booth.
Our goal was the large square, we did a practice run to learn the stitches then learned a whole new level of respect for crocheterโ€™s!
Swipe right for the next days efforts after a bit more time and application.

I had a request to create a Wet Felted Santa Boot Workshop. In this workshop we will learn to work with Merino Batts and pre-felts. The batts make the layout stage a lot quicker, and the pre-felts keep your designs clear and in place. You can create whatever design you choose.
If you would like to try your hand at wet felting, this workshop is on Sat 4th December at 1.00pm in Helensvale. There are three places available and bookings can be made via our website.

Why Create

I have been creating for as long as I can remember. Sewing clothes for my Barbies, for me, for friends, and then for my children. I have made jewellery, bags, mixed media paintings, and have always needed to play with texture and colour. For some years there was โ€˜no timeโ€™, allowing myself to be consumed by work and kids. Lately, the creative call has become louder as I discovered weaving, felting, textile basket making and dusted off my sewing machine. I am planning to transition to a slower, more mindful way of life and in so doing create a space for others to find expression for their creativity.
