Artfest Day 1:: Sunny Carvalho Workshop

So, Sunny Carvalho is one of my most favorite people in the world. I met her at my first artfest and she is so kind and generous, I couldn’t help but lover her to pieces from the first instant I met her.  I have collected quite a large set of handmade, original Sunny pieces which makes me so happy. (Don’t you just love her skirt? She made that too!)

She taught needle felted cuffs and it really was an awesome class. Above is her felted cuffs which were stunning and very inspiring.

She is a wonderful and patient teacher.  I had never worked with needle felting before and it was very meditative and fun.

These are my cuffs that I made in class. I couldn’t resist buying her bird and skull ceramic buttons for my cuffs. They just add the perfect touch. I have already purchased some wool roving in hopes of making a needle felted camera strap. Wouldn’t that be fun!

Here are all the cuffs made during class. A pretty impressive set, I do have to say.

  1. I tried needle felting just before Christmas and loved it. Never thought of it for something flat like a cuff or strap. Sounds like a fantastic workshop! Happy felting!!

    Your cuffs are very cool, and I am very much looking forward to seeing your camera-strap. That´s a certain winner!
    It was so great meeting you again at Artfest and spending some wonderful late-nite-arting-time together 🙂 You´re absolutely right, it´s not the last time we´ll meet! 🙂
