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!!!!!!

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.

Guest once again at the Danish TV channel ”frihuset”.

When I showed my needle felted work at the TV channel “frihuset” last time I was invited, they were very impressed and they asked me if I would come again in December and show my Christmas pixies. I have during many years made a collection of my own pixies. Every year I took one or two pixies for myself and that way I have been able to use this collection for several Christmas exhibitions at galleries and other places, where I was invited.

New course subject

I have had a new course subject for my latest course in Copenhagen.
