I've had such an amazing response to my LambChop workshop that it's full up. I will be teaching LambChop again at The Mississippi Valley Textile Museum Fibre Fest. This is the first year we will be teaching during the show. I will be teaching on Friday Sept 8, 2017. More information to follow!
Loretta and I have been friends for years and I have been fortunate enough to stay at her beautiful house on Wolfe Lake during our Westport Studio Tours. This is the first time we've collaborated on a Dual Workshop Day! I'll be teaching my Needle Felt a LambChop workshop (such fun!!) and Loretta will be teaching her Needle Punch Rug Hooking Workshop....(I want to take her class!!) . Join us for a lovely day at the lake! Enjoy our workshops and a BBQ lunch and a wee trip around the lake if you're so inclined! Mark you calendar.....July 10, 2017!
Space is limited so let me know if you're interested in my workshop. Loretta's email address is here too if you'd like to take her class......
Over the past 25 years as I traveled in my career as an animator I gleaned an acute awareness of the tactile nature of textiles. I took many classes in embroidery, pottery, batik, bead stringing and making
and finally in Berlin I found the art of felt making. In 2002 I made the decision to focus less on my animation career and more on my fibre art path. I have continued to explore all the joys and trials of being a fibre artist, but I do jump back in to animation when something wonderful comes along. I worked on the Universal feature "Curious George" in 2005 and on "The Princess and the Frog" which is a Disney feature and was released in December 2009.
I continue to try out new things, taking a wire sculpture course in Haliburton ON a couple years ago and just recently learnimg the art of Rug Hooking.
