Two eager Swedish women on my private course

This week I have had two eager Sweedish women on private course at my workshop here in Holbaek.
They stayed at our hostel and were Lucky to get a room with view to the water at the fjord.

My latest course- Sweet little dogs

Last week-end I had the last group-course this season. When we finished there were 13 sweet little raw fleece dogs ready to leave together with 13 proud dog owners.
The students learned how to make a sitting dog, -first they made the basic body and then they needled -one by one- stables of wool to this body and learned how to make the face of the dog and real “alive” eyes with a wet look.

No doll of the month in April, but you can see the results from my private student Irmgard from Switzerland.

The whole last week I had a private student from Switzerland. The first half part of the week Irmgard learned how to “build” a landscape and the nexy half part of the week she made an eagle with the raw fleece technique. Irmgard was also on a course by me nearly exactly a year ago, where […]

Witch-course in Copenhagen

Last Sunday 12 proud witches went home from felting course in Copenhagen!!!!!!
It was such a funny course where we could add a lot of details during the proces that made the witches more and more realistic.
-and it must have been a very popular theme as there was a waiting list of 10 who had wanted to join the course.

Doll Of The Month – March 2014

This month my inspiration came from wool that I found in my stock. This wool reminded me of Gandalf and his big grey hair and I had to work with a type like his and it showed up to be very interesting, because I could use the technique I have developed and work with the colors of his face to give him his special character.

Doll Of The Month – February 2014

Doll of the month in February is a big raw fleece relief with dog heads needled into the fleece.

New theme for my courses – Animal-cushions

I am lucky to have a group of very good feltmakers, who are willing to let me “try” my ideas on them. In that way they are helping me to see, if my ideas will work.Last weekend they got the challenge to make animal cushions.

Doll Of The Month – January 2014

This winter-woman is made with a technique that I need very special wool for. The wool comes from the little Norwegian wild mountain sheep that is one of the few original sheep races that has kept the ability to loosen the whole fleece every year when the new wool starts to grow. That gives the wool a quality that makes it possible to work with as if it was clay.

Detektive work for the felt-museum in Mouzon in Northern France

I have some detective work I would like you to help me with

Two weeks ago I got a mail from Vincent Hadot, who is director of the felt-museum in Mouzon in Northern France.

He is making an inventory list for the museum and he is not able to find the name of the person, who has made a group of animals that are on the museum. He attached the three pictures that I show you here and asks if I know the name of the person who made them.
