Shadow Felting Workshop with Fiona Duthie. 13th - 15th November.

We chose the hottest weekend so far this year to host the well known felt artist Fiona Duthie for a three day Shadow felting workshop in Augusta.
Fiona was a fantastic tutor, very generous with her knowledge and time and a lovely person to be around. We all worked very hard for the three days and produced some fabulous garments.

Our Instructor insisted we had a break......(It was about 30+ oC that day!)
some went for a swim, others just dipped their toes in the sea.
