Our last three Drop In days before the summer break will explore fine cobweb felt – perfect for a summer wrap, soft and warm but very light.
The dates are:
Lucan – Sunday 13th June 12.00-1500
Blanchardstown – 16th June 10.00 – 13.00
Bray – Monday 28th June 10.00-13.00 (cancelled!)
I was looking at some examples of beautiful cobweb felt on the internet and came across the work of Russian feltmaker Marina Shkolnik. Marina lives in Moscow and has been felt making for only three years. The photos on her work on flickr and etsy are just beautiful. http://www.flickr.com/photos/feltedpleasure/page5/. I discovered Marina’s work while looking at the photos of recent work from one of our own members Kate Ramsey (there is a link to her on the Blogroll to the right of this post)
