The Big News

1. Do you have email? (check)
2. Do you have a webcam? (check-most laptops already have one)
3. Do you want to take a one-on-one workshop with me? (hmmm, tell you more?)

Okay, so I am not sure how I can click a button and suddenly I have a smiling, eager student appear on my laptop screen, but after installing a software link (an equally easy click) I can do this! (angels singing) There are so many of you all over the planet that I would like to reach, and I will get to your corner of the world eventually, but in the meantime, this is really good. I am shocked at how easy this leap has been to make and if you are unsure, we can briefly connect just to say "Hi' and for you to see how it will work.

the cost (payable via paypal) is equivalent to taking a workshop with me and we can break up the time into 2 half days (especially good for those is different time zones).

Interested? Email me at with what you would like to learn, your experience level and where you are located. I will then get back to you with all the juicy details and get you booked.

Home. Now what?......

Some awesome pods from the weekend...

Sara, earlier in the week. She has a ceramics background and took to the process naturally!

Deborah, trying to look pleased that this rope is taking so long ;o)

Cindy's super soapy c-1...that's the way to do it! It turned out fabulous.

I have had a great week. I traveled to Massachusetts to hang with the wonderful Chris White and some other feltmakers at New England Felting Supply, make lots of pods and come home with a pile of beautiful wool. My big haul was mainly short fibre merino in their exclusive "strata batt". The variation of colours creates depth and interest. The second group of pod makers had lots of felting experience, so we were brave and mixed all kinds of wools and elements with great success and I was inspired by their fibre choices!

I am now home and have been resting, thinking, returning lots of messages and planning the next few months, which fill so quickly! I need to produce a few pieces for the Canadian Guild of Craft in Montreal to deliver next week and I have a web student this weekend. While I was able to catch some z's the last couple of days, reconnect with the lives of my cohabitants, I think it is now time to dig back in.
