Finishing School lesson three (needle felting) was a great success thanks to Susanna Wallis and, of course, our ever-expanding band of eager students.Thanks to everyone who turned up and vented their frustrations by repeatedly stabbing a tiny ball of wool. I’m sure it was 90% creativity, 10% therapy for most!
There were some really interesting creations from tiny teacups, to felty-beads to badges featuring all manner of animal, vegetable and robot.
We had such a great time and hope you did too. Actually, we’ve heard that many of you have caught the needle felting bug and are pursuing your own projects with the materials we sent you away with. This is really exciting and, of course, what Finishing School is all about. Feel free to bring in/wear/show off any finished trinkets at our next session! And, if you’re after more wool or needles – or any other textile craft odds’n'ends for that matter – you might want to check out Susanna’s recommendations of the Handweaver’s Studio (which opens the doors to its charming new premises on 140 Seven Sisters Road, N7 7NS on 21 August) and Wingham Wool.
See you next time!
