We are having a blast with Catherine Marchant while she is giving the class on Free Form Yarn Dyeing.

She is showing us fun and fast ways to dye yarn. I love the Juice dyeing.

Here are a few pieces she made on the first day, Wet and dry.

So many cool things could be created with these skeins. Which I could keep them!

All classes are fun at Curious Mondo but when Jodi McRaney-Rusho is the instructor, something magical happens. The chat lights on fire.

It is such a unique experience. Her last class was Recycled Glass Jewelry Making Online Course.

Take a look at just some of the pieces covered in the course. Just a taste because there were many more:

This time we start a series of online courses on wire wrapping.

The first one was basic wire wrapping.

Shahar Boyayan and Jakob Jennings were the instructors, Scott Romig the host and the audience loved them.

Six full hours of pure content and a lot of wire wrapped pieces made.

There was a small glitch with the live streaming on the second day but people kept having fun in the chat until things were back to normal. People in the chat made comments that Jakob is so cute and talented and Shahar funny and entertaining. Guess they make a good duo!

Here is a recap on the online course on crochet planned color pooling by Kim Sorensen

This was Kim’s first online course at Curious Mondo and she rocked!

Shahar Boyayan was the host for this course. She tried a little bit of crochet pooling on camera but that didn’t go very far.

She knows so much about crochet pooling and she is so good teaching. People fell in love with her. She got tons of questions and the audience was really excited to get their projects started.

This was not a short tutorial but a 9 hour course. In-depth so people could become masters in planned color pooling

She showed several variations, patterns and styles of planned color pooling. The gifts for the chat drawing were also incredible.

This week on Felting TV we show you the different types of needles for needle felting and the purpose for each one. Happy felting!

Felting needles are barbed needles used to interlock wool fibers. As the felting needle is moved up and down, the barbs on the needles catch the scales of the wool and entangle them creating a material called felt.
