Whew! Great Student work!!!

Anita's sea creature...
Ana's deep blue pod in progress (above)...The "Deb" collection below!



Deb and Ana
Michelle, who came all the way from Arizona, workin' it!!
Anne...thinking it through at every step!


Oh, yes!...Michelle's pieces above and below (aren't they awesome?)



Above...pretty meets peculiar (in the most special way) Work by Linda Van Alstyne (green "heart"), Veronica Fritz (Flower), Laura Burke (lotus pod)
...the Janice collection (Above)....Laura Burkes red monstrosity below (wow)

above...Connie carefully considers her pod as her other looks out!

Below...Nan attends a pod opening...and she's happy about it!



Above...go big or go home!!


Lee's quirky curiosity!


BAGS! 9 of them...no images of the "in progress" (sad face)! I was way too busy!!! We had so much fun. Alice, Michelle, Sally, Annette, Alice, Jenn, Anita, Cathy and Ellen!


Well...first things first. My students R-O-C-K! It is such a pleasure to teach those with a little (and a lot) of know-how. These fabulous ladies came ready to create. I was so excited to stretch in all kinds of directions to help them acheive an amazing array of variety in their felt work.


There were alot of open ears and open minds as I spoke of "Fiber Dynamics", as taught to me by Chris White. There were a few good little nuggets and I hope they will continue to think, experiment and learn whenever and where ever they can. The possibilites are endless. A special thanks to all those who traveled to come see me. I could not have asked for a better group. Hugs all around....

Joyce Compton said...

Oh...I have to make one!!! Are you ever in Pittsburgh teaching?!

Andrea Graham- Feltmaker said...

Joyce...I L-o-v-e Pittburgh! If you have a group, I could come. Do you know Annie the feltmaker?

Di Pugh said...

Hey we have a South Pittsburg and it's called "The Tidiest Town in Tennessee". You could come here to teach and then I could check one more thing off my 'Bucket List'!

Andrea Graham- Feltmaker said...

I like tidy towns! :o)

I just found your blog on Pinterest and am now following! What a wonderful fiber artist you are! I have a big bag of felt and some felting needles that have been sitting in a box for a few years, you have inspired me to go make something with it!
