To describe the whole process would take almost as long as the workshop did....but here, Ruth is making sure that the inner layers of wool are wet through before she can start on the outside.
Now she can concentrate on her colour scheme...and this is just the beginning.
From here to the next picture is a huge leap, involving rolling, cutting, a bit of pinning, lots more rolling then restringing an old necklace for the handle and creating a fabulous feature closure and then....
It was a lot of work, but most definitely worth it.
Well done Ruth!
I already have requests to run another bag workshop. If you're interested, just let me know and I'll do my best to get it organised before Christmas.
