THE OUTING

Three of my Angora goats are just too darn delicate to stay in the"sheep barn" for the winter.
Instead they are sheltered in a more domestic setting along with the remainder of our aged angora rabbits. In the rabbit barn they enjoy a more insulated existence, however, by mid March cabin fever has set in.
We are just beginning to have opportunity for the odd spring stroll. Angus, Hazel, Maple, Butternut and I are quite a sight as we head down the farm lane.
This week, while on one such excursion, I decided that some fresh spring photos of the gang would be lovely and dashed into the house to grab a camera. When I opened the door to head back out my entourage was ready and waiting to come in
(notice poor Angus gets last dibbs on getting in the house).

...... and no, I didn't let them all the way in - despite some serious lobbying.

SPRING NEWS LETTER





Spring Workshops are in the air!

Choose from the Following dates for
Landscape Felting with Heidi Wulfraat
Tuesday April 21st , 10am -4pm
Saturday April 25th, 10am – 4pm and
Saturday May 23rd, 10am – 4pm

Heidi has created a new series of felted designs,
now patterned and available as kits for your
exploration:

“ I like to begin by working on a water color “sketch” of
the image that I have in mind. These paintings are then
translated to a felted medium. It’s a good fit for me.
Both watercolor and felt flow with a certain ease of
motion which can take you in a direction that you may
never have expected!”




The Workshop:
This workshop is tailored to the beginner felter.
Choose from the kits available and discover
the materials and techniques that will allow you to develop
your own repertoire of felted works.
Explore design and color elements, the “mood” of landscape,
and the effective use of embellishment.

INDUSTRY

If taking my cue could have been any more obvious this week I can't think how.
My beautiful little studio finches have been so industrious that I couldn't help but be inspired to get right down to "building" things myself. So as these little wonders worked on a lovely new nest (nest #9) I too played with fibres, fabrics, threads and and things..................
