Gorgeous Felted Ruffle Wraps on a beautiful summer afternoon. Love the color palettes chosen by each workshop participant -- so different and unique.
The hat feltmaking workshops were a crowd favorite! It was truly great to welcome felters of all ages and levels experience to the classes.
There were lots of technique demos, hands-on practice, and note taking. We worked with resists, perfected 3D shaping, and so much more.
Ruffle wraps taking shape on the felting tables. Each class is a rich experience in group, collaborative learning, with each student receiving individual attention and help from Robbin as well.
Busy hands, lots of colors, beautiful wool, hand-dyed silks -- taking time with your project layout is a very important step in the process.
Here, a beautiful merino wool & silk hat is taking shape, literally, in Robbin's hands.
It was great to have large, roomy spaces to work in. The best part was having so many friendly, fun, and creative students!
In Robbin's workshop in Ireland, hosted by Anita Marnell, working on a seamless cowl design.
And, after all that hard work, comes the modeling! Love seeing results and love seeing happy students with their new felted garments and accessories.

We couldn't have asked for better weather for our Ireland workshop! Just beautiful!

Our Palm Washboards got a lot of use at the workshops! It is very rewarding to introduce new feltmakers to these marvelous felting tools hand-make, one at a time, in our Minnesota woodworking studio.
While in the UK, we got to visit with Angela Barrow and her family (Simon and Charlotte) at Woolfest. The Barrows run Adelaide Walker store, our exclusive Palm Washboard distributor in the UK.
Woolfest was amazing! Wool and beautiful sheep everywhere, what could be better!
It was back to work as soon as we got back to the US -- here is a new wool locks wrap in progress on the table, using gorgeous wool acquired at Woolfest!
