After weeks of making, planning, rehearsing and not a little over-excitement, the second St Margaret's House Fashion Show finally came around on December 5th. Everything went incredibly smoothly, thanks to a brilliant team of models, stylists, photographers and behind-the-scenes wizards.
I am particularly grateful to my hairdresser, Sandy Caird, who has been cutting my hair for the past 15 years. He brought along 4 of his stylists and worked wonders. The inspired hairstyles created by his team from Hair by JFK really complemented my Wearable Felt Collection, Highland Strata.
The Highland Strata collection is for sale and will be added to my Etsy shop after the Christmas holidays. However, if there is anything you see and would like before then, payment can be made with a BACS transfer. Just contact me if you would like to discuss any item.
One thing that has been missing over the past few months is teaching. My last workshops were a little while ago and I would like to put that right in 2015.
I am currently working on a programme of 4 feltmaking workshops. These are intended for beginners and more experienced feltmakers alike, as the focus of each session is to hone the techniques required to create fine felt.
The dates for my workshops, to be held at St Margaret's House, are:
31 January 2015 Colour and Texture | Abstract Felt Wall Art
21 February 2015 Fine Forms | Floral Felt
7 March 2015 Felt in Motion | Infinity Scarves
4 April 2015 Spikes and Resists | 3D Vessels and Pods
All workshops are from 10.30 - 4.30, include all materials, and cost £60.
More information about these workshops will be available very soon. However, I would really appreciate it if you could register interest by contacting me via my website. I will then get in touch early in the New Year with all the details.
Demonstration in full flow...
That's all for now. Thank you for your support and interest in my work in 2014.
I hope you have a great time over Christmas and the New Year. I will be taking time off from December 21 until January 7. Much as I am looking forward to a break (of course I am!), I am also excited about what 2015 will bring.
