Another Felted Vest Workshop!

A couple of Saturday mornings ago I headed down to NY state to the delightful town of Clayton, NY to the Thousand Islands Arts Center to hold another workshop. Once again I had four ladies in the class  in the upstairs class room. They were waiting patiently as I had been delayed at the border for 30 minutes! But they were raring to go.

Choosing dyed prefelt.

 
First there was choosing a colour out of the five pieces I had dyed for the class.





Then I got everyone started....you can see the concentration, here they are starting to wet their work.














My students popped into the washroom next door to see their creations after we had cut armholes.

Fab fronts.

Boffo backs!


In the last two pics thank heaven it was a hot day as the vests are damp and dripping!

The thing I love about Clayton is my students come from the surrounding islands and Northern New York state where they are vacationing or spending the Summer at their cottages. One came by boat!

Note to self.... must do more of that aqua!
