This is one of my favourite shows...I travel quite far to do this one day show! I'm teaching tomorrow (Friday...My burst out of the frame tulips!) and the show is on Saturday 9-5. Come see me in Booth 7 in the auditorium (right in front of the kitchen) . Shout out to the Caterers too! Gusto catering is fabulous!!
My Tulips workshop is completely booked for November 17, 2019! So, due to its popularity, I will be teaching this class on Sunday November 24, 2019 as well. No experience is necessary and we will finish this 5 x 7 piece in the 5 hours of the class.
As I traveled in my career in animation, I gleaned an acute awareness of the tactile nature of textiles. I took many classes in embroidery, pottery, batik, bead stringing and making
and finally in Berlin I found the art of felt making. In 2002 I made the decision to focus less on my animation career and more on my fibre art path. I have continued to explore all the joys and trials of being a fibre artist, but I do jump back in to animation when something wonderful comes along. I worked on the Universal feature "Curious George" in 2005 and on "The Princess and the Frog" which is a Disney feature and was released in December 2009.
I continue to try out new things, taking a wire sculpture course in Haliburton ON a couple years ago and just recently learnimg the art of Rug Hooking. Punch needle is a new obsession, but, even though I bore easily and try many different things, I seem to always come back to needle felting. It’s just sooooo versatile!
