Felting with The Magic Weave

I had the privelage of meeting two of the warmest and gentlest people at the beginning of the year. Cristina is a felt artist from Chile who met her beau in a wondrous collision of fate, and together, they run The Magic Weave. They asked me up to The Creative Arts Centre in Glenbrook to partake in needle felting recently. Though I was excited, I was worried my non-existent sewing skills may let me down. To my delight, there was no sewing required! It was meditative, working the fibres with the needle, before turning them into gnomes, snowmen and angels. Cristina had the packs ready and waiting, and the whole process was like witnessing magic!

There is such joy in learning a new craft, and I must say, I never knew I could be skilled with a needle and pile of wool and felt! Cristina and her partner, Frank, are excellent teachers. If I can pick it up in a few hours, so can you! I hope you get the opportunity to visit them in the lower Blue Mountains and catch one of their classes.

  1. I could never deal with needles as well and knitting was a pain… but this is different! I too love crafting in many different techniques. You did amazing. They are all beautiful!


    1. Aw, thank you! I once had a dear Aboriginal Elder try to teach me to knit squares for blankets to give to a women’s refuge. After a few hours, she looked at me and kindly said, “take the wool and needles home, love and practice!” I never did get the hang of it!
