I spend so much time keeping my knitting OUT of the laundry (hubby can’t be trusted with knits) that I forget the excellent effects of washing your knitting: felt! Felted items are lots of fun. My hubby’s favorite knitted items are his felt slippers. They are really more like boots. They are warm and soft and lovely. He doesn’t like much of my knitting but those he can get behind. I’ve only ever felted item that I’ve knit but that’s really only half (or less than half) of the felting world.
Enter Sue Pearl. She is the author of Making Felted Friends. She currently lives in London but she is making the trip to Urban Yarns for a fantastic workshop event! Sue is a very accomplished individual with a permanent exhibition in the Museum of Oxfordshire among others. Her felted creatures are made using a variety of felting techniques so there is a lot to learn in her workshop!
The workshop will be an all day affair (10am-4pm) with lunch and materials provided at the UBC Golf Club on August 21st. The cost is $140. You will be leaving the workshop having made a very funky bird and ready to make a lot more! To reserve yourself a spot give us a ring 604.228.1122
