Alexander Park Craft House, Menora.
Hosted by FeltWest Inc., it promises to be another excellent evening filled with inspiration. And supper is included - who could ask for more!

Only $5 at the door. Come join us and bring a friend. And help us spread the word!

ps. May's 2-day workshop for FeltWest is fully booked (and we are SO not surprised), so this is your chance to meet and see the work of a true felt artisan considered to be an elder in the global world of Felt. May's last visit to Perth (and FeltWest) was in 2000 since that time her work has gone from strength to strength. Join us before she heads home to Norway following a most successful Australian tour.

All the details in the flyer, and enjoy the additional images of May's work.

Irit Dulman Australian teaching trip October and November 2019 - UPDATE: Hi, here's a copy of the mini-update email that went out to our mailing list. Some of you have not provided an email address so I hope you see this:

Thanks so much for your patience awaiting information on the exciting opportunity to join botanical printing workshops I am hosting with Irit Dulman coming to teach you here in Australia for the first time.

I’m providing a mini-update because we now have solid dates and you have already waited far too long for more information:

NSW 26 Oct to 1 Nov Workshop #1 seven days

5 to 11 November Workshop #2 seven days

WA 19 to 23 November Workshop #3 five days

Cost is all inclusive and includes the night before learning days and the night of the last learning day. Please do not contact our venues to book. All booking and accommodation allocations will be through me.

Budget issues: due to my failure to take account of tax and superannuation requirements, and that my contract with Irit is in US dollars, I regret to advise that I have not been able to keep costs as low as we had hoped. I am now fairly sure we can keep it at up to $400AUD per person per day, still less than the daily rate for Netherlands or Uruguay.

We are offering two seven day residential workshops in NSW at the ANU campus at Kioloa and one five day residential workshop in WA at the Margaret River Retreat, Margaret River.

With our strong commitment to providing a quality and enjoyable learning experience in natural environments, there are limited places per group.

Full details including program outline, accommodation arrangements, transport directions and other useful information (like final cost and registration form), is following.

Please accept my apologies for the long delays in getting more information to you.

You will have the opportunity to register for your place in one of the workshops in reply to the next email I send you.

Thank you. I am so looking forward to meeting you in person!

JUST WOW! The work!!!!

Go on! Be in it to win it!

You can register to be part of our exhibition from tomorrow Tuesday 26th March.
Simply visit our website and find the online form. 😁😁😁

Thank you Joanne, lovely workshop.

Some photos of some of the participants ( from Plantagenet, Denmark and Albany) and their creations at the basketry class today at the Porongurups. Amongst the creating was must chat and getting to know each better. More planned for next year. Watch this space.
Participants are thrilled to learn the skills to be able to create beautiful things with no visits to the shops. Except for a needle and scissors all materials are found in nature. Enjoy the continued creation journey.

And how are these all joined?

Does anyone know how this is done please?

Joanne Francis Creations

There is now a vacancy in this saturdays class

Joanne Francis is addicted to the creation of baskets.
In a 5 hour workshop you can learn the skills and create a coiled basket to keep or give to another. It is a rewarding creative process that you can easily do again with your own local materials. You can easily source your own materials (or take excess home from the workshop) for free to create treasures to share with others. Leading up to this very social time of year to be able to create free gifts is such a bonus. There will be much information on materials and styles and inspiration.
Class will run adjacent to the Porongurup Shop (98531110).

1 Dec 2018 - 10.00am to 3.30pm.
Cost is $50.00 for the 5 hour workshop.
To book your place contact Joanne 0419903016

(Follow up workshops with different basketry skills is also available at future dates in 2019)
