hat felting workshop

my first felt hat with poppy flower

I’d just finished taking a hat felting class with the accomplished fiber artist, Judith Colvin from Montana. She is a wonderful teacher for someone like me who is a beginner in felting. She is patience and generous in sharing her experiences and notes with us in class. Some pictures from the workshop at Wayne Wichern’s.
