The September Meditation Beads workshop with Nancy Ballesteros was both incredibly inspiring and relaxing in equal measures. Day 1 introduced participants to new ways of thinking and working with nuno felt, pushing the boundaries of traditional nuno and making a rich highly textured cloth from fabrics that we never dreamed of felting before. Day 2 had us cutting, stitching, embellishing and creating a broad range of beautiful textile beads. Nancy brought along an expansive collection of examples of beads and materials to get the creative juices flowing, and also showed us different options for cords to string the beads along. It was a fabulous, very enjoyable workshop, thank you Nancy. Here are some quotes from participants:
‘this has truly been two days of non-stop knowledge and production. The atmosphere has been very welcoming, fun and relaxing’.
‘I learnt so much, Nancy is a fabulous teacher and takes time to talk and advise each participant’.
‘Nancy’s workshop is the best way to get inspired’
‘The tutor has amazing skills and talent which are so well transferred to class members – from an awe-inspired class attendee.’
