Fabulous Felting!

We really are very lucky to have such a talented bunch of creative Halfpenny Home friends, one of whom is Rachel, who has agreed to do some felting workshops at the studio over the coming months. Rachel brought in some of her work to show us and we were so taken with it we thought we should share it with you!
I particularly love the felted flowers, including this beautiful poppy, which can't fail to cheer up even the dullest day!

These colourful felted mats are just gorgeous and are what Rachel will be teaching at her first workshop at Halfpenny Home.

I love the pretty spring colours in this one.

On subsequent workshops Rachel will be showing us how to make one of these beautiful felted lariats.
This lily lariat is my absolute favourite and Rachel has even embellished it with pretty little bronze seed beads.

And what better way to keep your teapot nice and toasty!

Don't need much excuse for a cuppa! Now I just have one more reason......

Link As luck would have it, the new issue of Oh Comely has recently arrived - perfect to go with that cuppa!

I'll be putting the latest copy of Oh Comely on the website over the next few days. Meanwhile, I had to share with you a shot of the back cover, which I think is just lovely!
Do get in touch if you'd like further details of Rachel's felting classes at Halfpenny Home. The first one is on 30th April and you need to do the first one before moving onto the other projects.

  1. I really like the tea cosy, if only we had a teapot!

  2. Good excuse to get one maybe? She is soooo very clever and a fab teacher, we love her enthusiasm! Nic x

  3. Love the felting! I have had a go of needle felting which was great fun but quite fancy a go at wet felting x

  4. Fab felting! What time is the workshop on the 30th? T x

  5. Rachel's first workshop is 2-5pm on 30th April. Let us know if you'd like us to book you a place. Jx

  6. Wow, the felt pieces all look amazing! Although I am a bit biased as Rachel is my mum! I've been admiring her work in the flesh this weekend, so many lovely things - she is very talented. I once had a go at making the lily lariat with her which was great fun. Beth

  7. Hi Beth - You are rightly proud of your mum! Her work is beautiful. Rachel is so enthusiastic about her felting and it just shows in her work! I am hoping to have a go at making the lily too! Jacquix
