My approach to the workshop was to do as I was told (yes, really)...and to understand the why. By the end of the three days, I had (still in my head but to be written down as soon as possible) a long list of fabulous tips.
How to create a garment from basic shapes.
How to adjust a pattern.
How to create interesting design as opposed to fabric.
How to use silk to create shadows.
How to join felt pieces without water.
How to create smooth edges and shape shoulders.
How to make buttons.
I learned from Catherine and from my classmates. I saw how an efficient feltmaking workspace is organised and set up. I enjoyed the food, the hospitality and the companionship. Most of all, I loved being with women who are as nuts about felt as I am.
