I thought I would give you a rest from dress up dates (It’s still being made at the tailors- grr!) to give you a travel tour update.
Well we have been away for almost 6 months now, I think we have made the most of every scrap of time here so far, had lovely holidays etc… & lets not forget missed a WHOLE winter! However from here on in the school holidays are all used up & the thought of waking the children every day at 6am for the same old routine in eyeball meltingly hot weather was making me/some of us feel a bit like ‘it’s been fun but…’ & a bit gloomy, so when I was told that there might be a chance of us (me & the children) just doing the 6 months contract & going back early it seemed the best of all worlds- a winter in sunny South East Asia then back home to Cornwall for a lovely summer 🙂 Lets do it!!
We are not going back to Gorran Haven straight away (sorry lovely friends in Gorran, although we will visit as soon as we are back) we are going to have a bit of a travel about first, see some friends & family (visit babies born but not yet seen- apart from on skype). Which brings me to the reason for this post (apart from to warn friends to get nice drinks on ice in preparation)
I like the idea of sort of ‘singing for my supper’ as we make our way down through the country so I thought I would offer felting workshops as I go. The workshops will be £25 per person for a day (bring a packed lunch to share) all materials will be included, I would like to keep the groups quite small & relaxed so everyone can have a chance to make something they want to make- think tea cosies made from local wools, slippers for those crisp spring mornings, felted picture artworks, bags, purses… etc you get the picture, something for everyone & it should then be really good fun!
The locations we will be visiting are Holmfirth in West Yorkshire, if you live around there & would like to take part let me know? Wales near Monmouth & we could possibly fit in a workshop around Stroud way or The Forest of Dean if you fancy? then we will head back to Cornwall for the beginning of May for the workshops at the Bedruthan Steps Hotel. (I can let you know the dates individually)
Please let me know if you would be interested in attending any of these courses & please share these events with people locally if it is possible? I really look forward to meeting some of you that I feel I already know from on here & my facebook page & meeting some new people as well.
