Online Course on Wire Wrapping

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!

Recap on the online course on crochet planned color pooling

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.

How To Choose Needles For Needle Felting

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.
