Robbin will be teaching several feltmaking workshops throughout the UK, and a one-day intensive in Ireland. Kirsten will be coming along to help and see the sights. Harry and all our furry studio assistants are staying home in Minnesota to mind the shop.
We are all very excited for this adventure, and to have the opportunity to meet fans in England, and to make new friends! There will be lots of felting, lots of laughing, and lots of ooh-ing and aah-ing over wool and silk! A visit to a big sheep & wool festival is on the itinerary (baaaah!).
Thanks to a very special invitation from Iris Brunton and the International Feltmakers Assocation, a month-long teaching tour around the UK has been planned, and registrations for workshops are in full swing. By popular demand, Robbin will be teaching beginner and advanced classes on several crowd-favorites, including the Felted Locks Shawl and the Ruana Shawl workshops.
