Final Pear Update

It’s been a long time coming, but I’m finally summing up the Great Pear Experience.  Over May and June I taught four workshops, one of which was for the staff at the Beehive Wool Shop.  Pears are fun… I’m not sure I ever want to make another one again, but I sure enjoyed the process.  This was the first workshop I’ve taught where the focus was more on shading the object over building the shape. It was so pleasing to see people’s interpretations.

Before I show pictures of the all of the pears, here is a bowl that I started before the workshops so that I would have something to hold them.  This is the start of it – it was different in each class as I continued to work on it.  It still isn’t complete, but you’ll see the process/progress through the pictures.

The World Loves a Pear

If you are hoping to take a pear workshop, another one has been added on June 11th.  There will be fluffy felted pears all over town 😀.

The first pear workshop was last Saturday, and we had a lot of fun.  It was a great group, and they produced some amazing pears. I’m looking forward to this Saturday’s class!  See sign up details for the class on the 11th on the Classes page.

Mmmm… Pears

It’s time for another workshop!  On May 28th I’ll be teaching a workshop on how to make needle-felted pears at the Beehive Wool Shop.  The shape is not too difficult, so we should be able to spend a little extra time layering fibres to produce shading.  Pears have so many amazing colours and shapes – I’m really looking forward to this class!  Space is limited, so contact the Beehive Wool Shop to reserve a spot.
