At each CraftAlive show, I conduct a series of hands on workshops as well as demonstrations alongside those presented by the various stallholders.

Over the past couple of years I have been delighted to have had the opportunity to share the fun of working with the Siena Adorn Needlefelting machine and encouraging show visitors to try their hand at making  postcards using this great little machine.

 

Del and her first postcard

There have been many “postcard” students over the past couple of years who have discovered how quick and easy these cards are to make and how much pleasure they can bring to the recipients.

In preparation for this year’s shows, I thought I would make up some other items using the Siena Adorn to make needle felt…..and I have incorporated the use of a warm water washaway also available from the Siena Adorn Creative Products range.

This is a sneak peek at just one of the items that will be on show at Dubbo CraftAlive in a couple of weeks time!

Needle felted tiny treasure box

Needle felted from merino, silk, kid mohair and silk throwsters waste on Siena Warm Water Washaway.  Embellished with hand dyed emu feathers, assorted beads and ribbon.

 

CraftAlive kicks off early this year with a return to Dubbo NSW for the first time

in nearly 10 years. 

Dubbo CraftAlive will be held in the Dubbo Civic Centre

from Friday March 4 to Sunday March 6 2011.

 

I will be continuing to organise and conduct workshops and demonstrations during the course of the show and look forward to meeting both new friends and familiar faces in the Crafter’s Workshop Cafe.
