WORKSHOP DETAILS: Felt Storage Tub
Saturday 20 November 2021 – 1pm to 4.30pm – Cedar Creek (via Samford)
It is with great pleasure I introduce you to Karen, Zenzero Design, and her fabulous workshops. Following you will find a short introduction for Karen and all the workshop details.
Zenzero is the brain child of Karen Wright. The youngest of three daughters, Karen was raised in a creative environment with parents who were passionate about doing, making and learning. Her focus is to simplify and embrace the practice of slowing down. To value and re-purpose items from bygone eras, make carefully considered choices and treasure items that were worth waiting for. She is passionate about our carbon footprint and strives to reuse, recycle and re-purpose whenever possible.
“The simple act of working with your hands can often create a sense that the world has slowed down. Whatever that creativity is, it provides a chance to personally connect with a process that in turn gives us the space to make our own mark and the opportunity to dream of more. Essentially, it’s the chance to unwind, ponder and create.”
In this workshop you will create your own felt storage tub. Karen will guide you step by step through the assembly process, how to stitch the tub panels together, how to construct the interior felt pocket including the fabric trim, attach the fabric trim to the tub and how to attach the leather handles using the hardware provided.
