Today’s students were Jenny, Felicia and Anne, three friends from the Derby area who travelled up for the day to make Merino and Silk Collars.
As you can see from the photos of their finished work the ladies did a wonderful job and achieved some fabulous textures. They even got done in time for a quick Tyvek demonstration and each made a Tyvek brooch.

Jenny, Anne and Felicia…..all hoping the damp, cold weather continues a while longer!
It was a pleasure working with you ladies. I hope you all enjoy wearing your new creations and go on to make lots more!
I’ve been busy making samples for a Nuno Collar Workshop which I have been asked to do at the Thomas Garrett Rooms in Heighton in the Autumn. I deliberately steered myself away from my usual pallet of greys and muted colours and I’m really pleased with the results. These collars are incredibly lightweight (approx 35gms) making them very comfortable to wear. Each one is held in place with a Tyvek brooch.
