I was lucky enough to be invited by Deb Tewell, the organizer of the annual Felter's Rendezvous in Colorado Springs and owner of the Felting Source to teach at the March 7-10, 2020 Rendezvous. This event was absolutely amazing, so much fun and so wonderful to reunite with felter friends and make so many new ones. And thank heaven that this event went off without a hitch right before all the ensuing tumult resulting from the coronavirus.
I taught a four day nuno felted seamless collage vest workshop. Since the class size was smaller than expected, mainly due to just too many garment classes, I made lemonade from lemons and encouraged each student to go out of their comfort zone to create a more complicated vest than I would normally invite in a larger workshop. What a win/win!
