6th Feb 2010 QVMAG Inveresk.
Today we had a great mix of people, the youngest being three. It was also wonderful again to see such a cross section of the community wanting to be part of this work. It was also fantastic to see that people that had just learnt the skill of making felt spheres were confident enough to help and show people that had not felted before how to make one. It seems to be addictive and most people did not stop at just one, but made many - even the children. Again it was just beautiful to hear conversations just flow amongst strangers.
Also this week I have had people wanting to contribute spheres made from angora and Alpacha - aslong as it is cream and felted and spherical (and you know that it will become a perminate part of a bigger collection) I don't mind.
Thank you to the wonderful people that were part of today, we made 45 spheres. Here is the list of people and their stories....
