The workshop was held at the Waldorf School in Calgary hosted by Tracey Kuffner.
Up above you can see the initial stages of a participant's vessel and below and intriguing shot of a packed pair of tights - I had to buy "panty hose" for the first time in my life!
Here is my friend (I don't know if she wants me to put her name on the web.... one never knows what type of personalities are lurking...) who seems to be enjoying the bubbly stage.

For me this course was interesting as I have never lived in a place where I could attend weekend workshops to boost my skills. I hope I get to go to more of them.
Students do inventive things....
I hope that tutors everywhere give credit when credit is due to those who demonstrate and share their creativity whilst attending a class. It was a pleasure for me to be with such students at this class.
A class is a perfect setting for Give and Take... As a tutor I always aim to acknowledge what I have learnt from my students. Respect!
Here are some felted warty protrusions that I created along the flappy edges of a rather organic vesses....
It probably isn't a new technique to experienced felters, but it is nice to think it might be!!
See blog later for my Shibori Felted Vessel (named the Hermit Crab by my daughter) which I hope will lead on to Shibori felted worms.....
