Easter Eggs Part Two

Have you been swithering about whether or not you want to take a workshop on needle felting Easter eggs?  Good news – while the April 1st class is full, another has been scheduled for April 8th.  As always, space is limited. Drop by the Beehive or give them a call at 250-385-2727 to register. Hope to see you there!

It’s easier than dyeing…

Needle felting eggs, that is. It’s definitely less messy… well, maybe less messy. Hmmm… forget what I just said. The mess is easier to clean up, well, unless you have a cat – that can make it challenging.

All this to say there is a new needle felting workshop scheduled at the Beehive Wool Shop on April 1 from 10:30am – 12:30pm. We’ll be making and decorating eggs – all supplies provided. It will be up to you how detailed you want to get, but I will show you how to layer colours for shading, and how to add dimension to your creation. The egg can be displayed in a variety of ways – in an egg-cup, propped against something or hanging like an ornament.  Space is limited (six people), so sign up by calling (250-385-2727) or dropping in to the Beehive (1700 Douglas Street). Hope to see you there!

A Plethora of Pumpkins

Wow.  And once again… wow.  I just finished a workshop at the Beehive Wool Shop, and I am so impressed with the pumpkins that were made… and the owl… That’s right – in addition to some people making second pumpkins, one person made an owl.  Unfortunately I didn’t take a picture of the owl (it wasn’t finished), but here is a picture of all the pumpkins. Sorry for the poor quality of the picture – two cups of coffee apparently makes for a shaky hand!  Thanks for a great class – that was a lot of fun!

The Great Pumpkin

Ever wanted your very own great pumpkin?  Now is your chance to make one.  I have a workshop scheduled at the Beehive Wool Shop from 10:30am – 12:30pm on Saturday, October 22, 2016.  Space is limited, so call or visit the Beehive to sign up.  Hope to see you there!

Pumpkins!

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.
