My Felt Piece from the Workshop with Karoliina and Rod

Here're my works that I made during the 3 day felting workshop with Karoliina and Rod. When I first heard they're comming I signed up right away. I thought it's going to be fun to meat such wonderful feltmakers. I got familiar with Karoliina's work long time ago and was really admiring it. I didn't expect to learn that much during the workshop to tell the truth, it's amazing. So if you ever have a chance to take their workshop don't even think twice do take it, it's so worth it. We used finn wool, which I think is so great for felting, it felts like a dream. Also we were required to have design ready, surprisingly I started thinking about the design right away as soon as I signed up and had the sketch ready with colour selections. It really helps when you make sketches, usually I don't, just go with a flow.
