New Class!! Learn to make a hat!

Hello Makers! West County Fiber Arts in Sebastopol will be hosting once again a felting class! I hope you can join me on this new journey. I will be teaching a Hat Making Class using a resist that will allow to create shapes, textures and to add your personal and special touch to your project. I will show how to design a hat from scratch. We will be starting by making our own pattern using our own measurements. It’s going to be a lot of fun!

You will be surprised at how many options there are when designing a hat. Lately, I’ve been immerse into hat making just because it is fun and to also have a few examples to show to my students for inspiration.

Spiral Hat

This is a hat that was ALMOST a failure! It was meant to be a rose, but instead it became something weird that started to look like a lump. Or perhaps a nipple?

Lumpy Hat Lumpy Hat Lump go away!

I didn’t liked it at all! It looked somehow disturbing. So I decided to perform surgery with a pair of scissors. dsc_7769

This is much, much better. I’m thinking of adding some design elements with a sewing machine.

As I said… This can be a journey! If you are interested on taking my class, follow the link below for more information and registration.

Bring a yummy dish to share at the lunch pot luck. The apple tree is full and needs to be picked, so bring a bag and take home some fresh apples.
It will be a fun day to do some shopping, spinning, knitting, and hang out with other fiber enthusiasts.

Looking forward to seeing you on the farm.

Color Palette – Pink Agate

I’ve been playing with making color palettes from random photographs. This one ended up on a colorway that I called Pink Agate (although the more I compare the picture with the crystals I have, this looks more like a Rhodocrosite):
