Beginners Workshop at the Bungendore School of Arts

Lis ran a Beginners Workshop last Sunday, the 28th June. The workshop was facilitated by Wendy Shanley of Kiku Arts Gallery, Malbon St., Bungendore.
Participants came from within a radius of Bungendore and brought with them enthusiasm to make their own felt . Students learned to lay out, either a headband, or a sample to be later made into a wallet. There was much discussion and experimentation of surface design possibilities.
Are you interested in learning about the process of feltmaking and to make your own individual pieces? Simply post a comment with your contact details to find out about future workshops.
