Felt workshop

Hand-made felt and embroidery by Sukyella

For the last 3 weeks I have been working with my friend Emma at a primary school, making felt. The children have each hand-felted a square and now they are embellishing the felt with embroidery - here is a preview of the project. There will be 60 squares altogether which we will then make into a hanging to put up at the school. All the children have loved the workshop and their work is soooo beautiful.
