Hello all friends in Canada and USA! There are some good news!
Now you can take a course for me without going to Europe!
On October 29, 2019 I will offer all Canadian and American feltmakers to enjoy a class. You are going to learn about decoration of the plain surfaces with cut-outs, practical working with carded wool and graphic décor composition in felt. We will make a pillowcase (front part).
The course will be held in a cozy home studio in Mississauga, Ontario. Workshop costs: 150 CAD + Swedish wool for 50 CAD. Sign up to talunata@gmail.com. You will receive confirmation to the extent possible. Advance payment CAD 100 to talunata@gmail.com via E-Transfer.
Only 8 places available!
Anyone who wants to use their own materials and does not want Swedish wool may do so, but it must be announced no later than October 1 due to delivery times. All participants will receive a list of materials and accessories.
