Contextart FORUM................

I have had the most awesome week in the Blue Mountains at the TAFTA Contextart Forum. We headed off last Friday and were delighted when we arrived at Leura ~ never been to the Blue Mountains before and it is beautiful, and Leura is so quaint!! Our accommodation was a gorgeous studio flat within walking distance to the numerous cafes, restaurants and shops.

Over Saturday and Sunday I did a felting workshop with Catherine O'Leary. Catherine's method involves creating nuno prefelts and then using these to create a design on a piece of prefelt and then felting in the traditional manner. Absloutely love the scarf/wrap I created
