Texstyle 08 .. Wandering Around ....

In between my workshops I had a sneaky peak at what the others were doing. Wendy Scott is a fellow Novocastrian and her work is stunning and amazing - she has a zeal for teaching textiles and it shows!

She ran a workshop called "Making Opals" where pieces of textile art began as scraps of leftover fabric.... they assembled .....and stitched .... and I believe they also used a heat gun and soldering iron to create new pieces of fabric (i didn't get to see the finished products...)

Lynda Peters presented a “Felted Bowl” workshop. They started with some wool tops .... and they ..... well I don't know how ...... but they used soap, heat and agitation to make these ...

Aren't the colours luscious!
and voila........ felted bowls!
The people from the Craft Mailbox had a display and "how to" for some of their products. They also had a selection of Kaffe Fassett's delectable fabrics ...
... the Clover Yo Yo Makers ..

It was an inspiring two days that I would highly recommend to fellow Textiles teachers - congratulations and thankyou to the teachers who organised it all.
