NEW Online Wet Felting Class - Flower Jewelry & Hair Accessories

Sep 24, 2021

After finally relaxing from the experience of confinement and COVID, I returned to work at the beginning of September. My 2 weeks break took me to the Camino de Santiago - the Camino Frances - where I was surrounded by Nature and quiet.

Maybe that's what made me want to start felting flowers again :) So, I picked up some of my short video workshops and did a total makeover, converting them into a NEW flower jewelry and hair accessories course.

I had lots of fun exploring shape and color, and I created very simple, as well as more sophisticated flowers.

If you find this an interesting topic, I invite you to take a look at the class details. Registration opens tomorrow, September 25th. The course starts on October 2nd and has the duration of 2 weeks.

Feel free to respond to this email if you have any questions.

Wet Felted Hats Masterclass – Answering your questions

Jan 29, 2021
 

Two questions have come up about the Hats Masterclass: how long the modules are and the price of the course

You might be wondering the same, so let me tell you a bit more about this.

To give you a better idea of each module, here’s a short video (above) that allows you to view the course content.

 

Most of the course videos are relatively short. The longer ones are around 15-20 minutes (usually the ones about the wool layout and the fulling phase). If you’ve watched my free videos or bought my felting tutorials, you know I cut out all the repetitions, as well as speed up some parts, to avoid making the lessons boring for you and making the videos too long. I make sure I keep the important bits

Where it makes sense, the course also includes complementary resources in PDF format for you to download.

 

Please note that you’ll have lifetime access to the Masterclass. That means that, even when I upgrade the course, add new videos and tutorials, ...

Coming to you from a locked down Lisbon. Can’t lie. Not feeling great. And I’m guessing you may not be feeling great either.

But it’s time to… I nearly said ‘react’. Instead, it’s time to act. I’ve started going for a jog in the morning again. And I’m slowly getting back to a routine, as normal as possible.

Meanwhile, I’ve been working on something that I promised you a long time ago: the Wet Felted Hats Masterclass. It’s ready and I’m now testing all the connections and technical stuff that must be in place to make things work smoothly. If you haven’t had the chance to see what it’s about, here’s the link to check it out.

If all the tests I’m doing go well (and I’m expecting they do), it’ll be available for you to buy from January 30th (next Saturday) to February 5th. The course will then be accessible from February 6th and...
