Masako's Felt Jewelry workshop...
This past weekend Masako Onodera visited to teach a Felt Jewelry workshop (needle and wet-felting) and present her lecture Tactile Bodies. As usual it was great to work with Masako and the students had a blast...you were all great and I thank you. Below are some shots of samples the students produced using both methods of felting...and yes, the last image is of my samples...I resisted the felting craze during grad school, saying that I would never felt and here I am, felting...never say never! In fact, I think I will be utilizing needle-felting to make some components for some new interactive devices in the near future.
