Workshop with India Flint

......recently i was lucky enough to spend a whole blissful week at a workshop in Warrnambool, with the lovely India Flint.....
.....learning the ancient art of felting, dying with eucalypts, and stitching, we made "landskins" and 'eco prints' ....
India is softly spoken, has a presence of pure serenity and grace... and is a brilliant teacher...
i was intrigued, and enchanted by the knowledge she shared with us, about wool and how it reacts, about dying explorations with different leaves, about her love of nature, and her travels...
i was totally enraptured by this amazing woman... and how she weaved, felted, boiled and stitched her magic...





There is something incredibly magical about a bubbling pot, full of colour....
it gives me tingles....
