Pine Needle Felt with Leiko Uchiyama – Welcome Back!

The lovely, talented and kind Leiko Uchiyama visited us in April, 2014 and taught a series of wonderful workshops, including a technique called ‘Pine Needle Felt’. We are always so honored when an instructor wants to come all the way to teach at our little Thimble. It is so inspiring and refreshing to have some new hands working away in our classroom. Leiko’s methods are unlike anything Mom, Lisa, or Carin teaches and we love seeing new techniques in action! It was an absolutely wonderful weekend filled with happy students, inspiring ideas and an overflow of laughter and creativity. That’s our favorite kind of weekend.

A huge thank you to Leiko for being such an incredible instructor and to all of her darling students for joining us!

    Can anyone explain what Leiko was doing in felt piece (blue gray) using kinitting needles.

    It beautiful. Are the small shapes she seems to be assembling silk? Are they connected with roving?

    Thank you.

    • She uses the knitting needles to gently push the wet roving around. It looks like silk and roving to me too
