The idea: we took it in turns to teach a craft to the others and here's what we did.
Jules taught us felting - we made flower brooches and felt pods or 'dust-catchers' as Jules called them. There's something physically satisfying about layering up the fibres, combining colours and agitating the wool to create 3D structures. We liked it.
I taught everyone how to create pictures using felt and the reverse applique technique - design an image, layer up felt, stitch on a design and then cut away the felt to reveal the felt in the colours you've chosen for your design. Lovely results!
Natural beauty products
Paula treated us all to an evening of making beauty products using ideas from Neals' Yard book,
We made a room spritzer, face masks, a range of bath salts and foot scrub. Packaged in a bag they make a lovely gift!
Sue taught us silk painting...really lovely.
The Cute Book
We also had a go at making some softies from this fab book - The Cute Book.
So, if you have a skill, why not teach it to others and learn something new from them!
Happy creating! Alli :-)
