08 December 2016 • Felt Making with Robyn Steel-Stickland

Hello. I just completed my "felt experience" at Opendrawer and highly recommend it. The classes are intimate where wonderful Robyn provides individual support in a group environment. Each week new skills are explored, demonstrated and put into practise. All questions encouraged. I arrived with a complete empty slate but now have a little history, knowledge/skills to make prefects, felts, vessels, flowers, nuno pieces and more. It truly was a lovely extended workshop to add a bit more creativity into my world. Go on, give it a go!
