Bunbury Felters have had a delightful end to our year, with the 2 day workshop presented by Fremantle Felter extraordinaire Soosie Jobson.

This innovative and energetic tutor started with a display of her beautiful sculptural works, followed by her letting us into the secrets of multi-resist felting...........
All agreed the work was 'exhausting feats of felting'  but most rewarding...there were starfish and faceted pods and then something or other else...............but we all had fun in each others company doing what we love to do......
