nuno felt book cover for surface texture design samples

Recently, I was in a workshop with Pamela MacGregor in Portland. In that workshop I learned to make several interesting surface textures with wool felt and roving. It was a fun 3-day class of soaping, rubbing, and rolling!

At the end of the day, my daughter picked me up and we had fun dining at some of Portland’s favorite spots. To name a few: Pok Pok, La Provence, Pambiche, Salt & Straw for handcrafted ice creams. Yummy…it was indeed a fun trip of FELTING, and FABULOUS FOOD!

  1. What could be more fun, learning new felting techniques and then spending time with your child.
