Introduction to Wet Felting with Rhonda Lamb Sunday, November 27, from 1-4:30 pm

Join Rhonda in a half day class and learn the basics of wet felting while making a small felt piece with some abstract surface decorations. This felted piece will be lovely to stitch and add more embellishments, use as a base to needle felt additional design, cut up into postcard or brooch sizes to embellish, use to cover a journal, make an eyeglass case or any other project where you would use felt or wool felt.

Your kit will include enough beautiful merino wool roving to create a small piece, and some additional fibers for additional embellishment. The instructor will provide other items [pool noodles, plastic, bubble wrap, etc.] for use in the class. Participants will bring other items needed for the class.

Date: Sunday November 27 from 1- 4:30 pm. The class will start on time as time will be limited to complete your piece. Class size is limited, with Guild members having the first chance to register.

Class cost: $45.00 plus kit fee of $15.00 for a total of $60.00 payable to RSG.

If you are interested, or have questions, please email Karen at b.williams2@sasktel.net to put your name on the list. Payment may be made by cheque payable to RSG or e-transfer. E-transfers can be made to treasurer@reginastitcheryguild.ca and indicate in the notes that the transfer is for this workshop.

Illuminated Letter by Angie Hughes

Create a beautiful letter on felt with machine and hand stitching and using Angie Hughes’ special foiling technique using chocolate wrappers. This will be a fun and interesting workshop and will result in a piece approximately 4×4″ in the letter and colours of your choice.

This workshop will be held as a group working together from the instructions and video from Angie. Date to be announced but hopefully mid-November. If you are interested contact Karen at b.williams2@sasktel.net.
