This weekend, or November 18th, 19th and 20th, myself and my house-mates will be opening up our studio for the Eastside Culture Crawl. It’s my first time ever participating (out studio was literally just finished a couple of weeks ago), and I’ve been busy needle felting and putting kits together.
Our studio is located behind our house in the alley, on Pender & Heatley. Head North East of the pirate house on the corner that you see in this google street view and you should find the alleyway. If you’ve reached Hastings, you’ve gone too far north. There are a few studios in the alley, and we’ll have our sandwich board in the alleyway.
At the event, I’ll be there demonstrating how to needle felt, and displaying some of the work that I’ve put together over the past couple of weeks. Along with the kit comes a special barbed needle for felting, a foam pad, fibre, and an instruction manual for how to make a needle-felted mushroom. All of the felt for the mushroom kit was hand-dyed with Kool-Aid!
This series is based on the characters from the stop motion Rudolph series that we all watched growing up!

I will also have some knitted items, and greeting cards available for sale too. Hope to see you there!
