2017 Workshops:

We have a few workshops coming up over winter.
If there is no snow on the ground, no icicles handing from your nostrils
and the toilet isn’t frozen then it’s not too cold!!
Keep an eye on the website for updates!

Felting Masterclass: with Leiko Uchiyama
(see: http://www.leikofelt.com/biography_eng.html)
Leiko, a professional felter, will be in Australia later this year
and will be giving a two-day workshop at the Guild on 30 Sept - 01 Oct.

Leiko will teach you how to make a stole/scarf with nuno pine needles,
inspired by real pine needles on fallen snow in Japan; the effect is three-dimensional.
Beginners as well as experienced felters are welcome.

This workshop is likely to be popular, so early expression of interest is encouraged.
We expect the fees to be $320 for Guild Members, to be determined asap.
Affiliated Members and non-members are also welcome (fees tba)

Would anyone like to provide Leiko with three nights’ accommodation?
The Guild will refund expenses.)
