Upcoming Hand Felting Jewelry workshops on the east coast

After my recent posts about the Fabulous Felted Fascinators workshop in NY and the Hand Felted Bangles to Bead workshop in NH, I've had inquiries about when and where the next opportunities to felt together are. The 2nd weekend in November I'll be flying into Tampa Florida to teach several workshops in both beadwork and feltmaking at Urban Stitch Studio.

Felters from far and wide have already registered, I know that Brenda from California and Marlene from Ohio are coming for Hand Felted Bangles to Bead and a Felted Floral Lariat. Oh my goodness, add Pat, the hostess and owner of Urban Stitch Studio, who herself is a vortex of creative and caring energy and talent, and I can hardly wait.
The following weekend, if you're in the North end of the east coast, on Sunday November 20th, only a fast ride down the NY State Thruway from my house, I'll be teaching the Hand Felted Bangles to Bead at Beads Mosaic right in Nanuet NY.

If you've been intrigued by the idea of feltmaking, seduced by a demo or article, and wanting to know more, join me in this opportunity for hands-on learning and personal attention in a setting that offers everything you'll need: this gorgeous store has every bead seen in the samples and I'll have an array of colored fine merino wool to choose from. Oh, just PLEASE bring a towel, (and your sense of adventure).

Expect to finish [at least] one bangle while learning several methods of surface design plus beadwork finishing methods that include: quick bezels, bead embroidery techniques, odd-count double-needle beaded bead

and undulating peyote beaded bead using the new goof-proof method that came to me when I was writing it for translation into Japanese, and using an economy of words.

This will be an energized and creative setting in which to explore at greater depth, the magic of feltmaking and some pretty versatile beadwork too. No experience necessary but, reserve your seat today. I'll need a head count by October 14th.
