Summer Crafternoon Tea - Felting Fun

 Today was the first of the summer "crafternoon teas" I am hosting on Sunday afternoons.  Crafternoon teas are Sunday afternoons spent with wonderfully spirited people, who enjoy being creative, learning new techniques or brushing up on previously learnt skills and  love sharing a scrumptious afternoon tea. Today was felting fun when we used plastic resist templates to create dimensional seamless pieces. I demonstrated the way I made the series of nature bowls. You can see them here. Above is one of  my most recent blue bowls, one of a pair. The first one has already found a home during a DUST craft swap ( Down Under Street Team - Etsy)
Here are some of the pieces that the felting crafternoon tea participants made this afternoon - a felt "forest" bowl, a needle book cover, a glasses pouch and a very 'organic" sculptured bowl.

 While we enjoyed felting and its results, somehow we "forced" ourselves to enjoy the afternoon tea.

 The next crafternoon tea will be in two weeks on 28 November - a clay play day with polymer clay and/or PMC (precious metal clay-silver) . Please contact me if you would like to join in the fun (there are a couple of places left).  
And to finish a great week - I am so excited about being accepted as a member of  Art Dolls Only. I am looking foward to participating in the challenges, learning from fantastic artists and making a small and humble contribution to doll making.
