Meet the Team - Christine

Hi There,

My role is “Education convener” and I am really enjoying the challenge of putting together an exciting programme of “Creative Learning” for you. I think that it doesn’t matter which fibre or technique you are skilled at or interested in, you need to be inspired and be enthusiastic about what you do. I hope that after you have been to Festival 2012 in Blenheim you will go home really motivated to HAVE A GO.

Felting is my passion, but I also spin and sew. I just love the endless possibilities of felt. I make garments, scarves, hats, slippers, and more recently sculptural and wall pieces.

I have lived in Marlborough for nearly 40 years, and find that it is a great place.
I enjoy boating in the Marlborough Sounds, skiing at the Rainbow Skifield, walking in the Nelson Lakes National Park, and wine and food from this beautiful area.
Bob my husband is very supportive of what I do, and over the last 5 years we have increased our family with 6 grandchildren. They are great, and play a big part in my life, and all have had a go at felting!

Me and Isla my youngest grandchild.

Various sculptures
The felting group laying out a rug: I am the one on the right in pink.
Didn't have a photo of Blenheim but hey St Arnaud is only one hour away, and all visitors should go there. Where we have a bach, and I do a lot of my "playing" and get inspiration.

I look forward to meeting you next year.
