Provencal Lavender

You will leave this class with green thumbs, after creating this creative variation of lavender made out of wool.  This lavender is mistaken for REAL lavender more times than not.  People find themselves touching it, in order to believe that it REALLY is made out of wool.    

During this workshop you will learn how to prepare (cut) your wool along with the twisting and twirling required to create the flower blooms and leaves that fill this adorable clay pot. Susie will share lots of tips and tricks to make the twisting and twirling easier, along with showing you other items that can be created, using the techniques that you learn in class.

Susie’s creative fiber-art journey started over 25 years ago making baskets. This led her to start her business, Basket Treasures. Her wool fiber journey started 10 years ago, when she connected with a local group that did a variety of things from quilting, rug hooking, wool applique, punch needle, and needle felting. As a result, there was a tidal wave of new supplies that came into her home for these new interest. Her husband joking told her that, she could not make any new friends, until he met them first….to ensure that they didn’t do anything that she didn’t already do… can guess how this worked out 😊 Susie has a cottage shop (Basket Treasures-Wool Cottage) and enjoys vending at a variety of venues throughout the Mid-West and the Southern United States. Basket Treasures, offers a variety of her hand dyed wool, velvet and sari silk ribbon. Susie loves meeting new people along with sharing tips and tricks that she has learned along her fiber journey. Her passion is teaching and sharing these different arts with others to keep the art alive and allow it to be passed along to the next generation.
