The Theme is Green

The 17th March was St. Patrick's Day and the Stirling Street Arts Centre held its Biggest Morning Tea to raise money for the Cancer Council. The "Theme is Green" decorated flowerpot competition was won by our very own Jane Field.........Well done Jane.

Beginners Workshop

Our first Beginners workshop was a success. Sue #1 held a very informative introduction to felting for our new members at the March meeting. They all agreed they are now game to tackle anything! Go for it Girls....

 All the pieces of felt the girls made can be used in next months project, "Quirky Bits".

Sculpture The Bay

Our first big event this year was the Dunsborough Sculpture By The Bay Exhibition, held along the Dunsborough Foreshore at the beginning of March.

The group entry was titled "Felting Around The Elements" 
"Inspired by the sea, the native bush and wide open skies, our hand-made felt pieces are sewn together to interpret the natural flow from water to land to air. The versatility of felt enables us to explore the shapes, forms and textures of nature, resulting in a very tactile work of art"

With the felted pieces handed in at the February meeting, Sue#2, Jean, Kerry and Kim set about sewing them onto the vessel shape (thanks to Greg for making the vessel, and to Catherine who had sewn on the underlay beforehand).

The finished piece was much admired by the judges and the public alike.....encouragement for us to do something again for next years exhibition.
