Just completed a 3 day felt workshop! Sachiko Kotaka from Lismore NSW, demonstrated her felting techniques at Paxtons Creative Space in Mackay. I had some successes and failures, but all good! A great learning experience! It was also very physical with lots of rolling, squishing and rubbing of the felt pieces during the felt making process. We learnt techniques like nuno, calamari, wild turkey’s nest and orikiri felting. I like the idea of combining felt with sheer fabrics in decorative and creative ways, especially for a tropical climate.
