2018 has been a busy year so far...starting with a trip to Sweden
Last year, Heather was appointed Communications Officer for the International Feltmakers Association and attended this year's AGM in Sweden from 3 - 6 May. For her impressions of the Conference and Sweden, read her Blog post and Colour Diary.
Moving on to the second Latvian Alpaca Adventure...
Heather returned to Latvia for the second Alpaca Adventure on Ian and Jo Storie's farm in the village of Ergli. To find out all about her 3-week sojourn, read her Blog post.
Scottish Felters Summer School, Dunblane
At the end of July, Heather was delighted to be able to teach a 2-day workshop with the Scottish Felters on their Summer School in Dunblane. It was a very successful, enjoyable workshop with great results (some of the participants are pictured below) and very encouraging feedback. Thanks to everyone involved in a great week.
Three words to describe this workshop: professional, creative and VFM! Value for money is important to most of us especially the retired non working amongst us. Paying for a workshop with someone you don't know requires a leap of faith.
I must credit Heather with a thorough and illuminating two days including a first day of mastering the basics which was confidence building and instrumental in ensuring we all had a beautiful piece of neckwear to take home.Heather shared tips from her great experience and knowledge and showed a generosity of spirit which I think it is fair to say made all of us students (some experienced and others not so!) come away with new techniques and challenges to encourage our own creative way. If you get the opportunity to work with her it will not be a leap of faith but a fascinating opportunity.
