Sat Jun 11  Dogs, Dogs, Dogs . . . with Donna Goulette: I never understood all the fuss about dogs . . . that is until I inherited a wee Pomeranian nine years ago. Being a lifelong germaphobe, that “dog” was not even allowed into my bedroom. However, she worked her way into my heart until eventually she slept on my bed! I get it now. I began making felted dogs, pure breeds and mutts, to showcase their individual beauty, personality, character. I would love to teach you my technique and all the tips and tricks I have discovered along the way. Choose a dog you would like to create. On the first day we will construct a wire armature on which we will needle felt the shape of the dog. Day two is for detailing to make your dog come alive!
