After a week in Sharon's cozy home and studio in Canada, tomorrow will be heading to Ohio for my workshop learning from prominent artist Pamela A McGregor and take the chance to meet a few renowned artists. I'm thrilled for it!
For the past few days we're quite engaged in wool felting from simple flower brooch to hand bag, then vest.
The most interesting but very exhausted for the ladies are vest making.
I taught them to make a reversible nuno felt vest. Laid inside out, both sides with patterns, embellishments......
A pair of mitten and the flower brooches are rather easy to make.
They made the clutch handbags as well.
Technique I taught was the 3D surface flap. Finished with textural effect and inner pocket.
Well, in a day's work, they finished the 2-sided vests. The blue one with beaded silk strings and hankies. The orange one with nuno felt flowers on the chest.
Reversed sides of vests.
Sharon, Janice, thanks for joining. Honestly teaching a vest is also challenge for me. Nice that you love it and enjoyed the process though a bit back pain.
Goodbye to Langley via the Fraser Bridge. Due to the very early morning flight to Detroit, I stayed tonight in an airport hotel.
After checked in hotel, I took the Skytrain to Richmond downtown for a walk and coffee. The area is of 2/3 Asian, thought I was in Hong Kong.
Back to hotel, the black&white greeted at the counter! Hotel staff said her name is "Cart Loader" and she's the guard of hotel. How cute!
Goodbye for a while Canada, I'll be back in a week and spend a couple of days for sight-seeing before returning Hong Kong.
