Join us for an exciting submersion into colour and texture using superfine merino, silk fabrics and fibres plus a myriad of other textile materials.

Creating felt is a simple process. An endless variety of outcomes can be achieved from home furnishings, wearables, sculptures and visual artworks.

In this one-day workshop we will focus on creating a piece of felt which could lend itself to a cushion cover, book cover, or simply a piece of art…. You will come away with an understanding of the felting process and it's endless possibilities.

Felting is a beautiful, tactile and meditative process – it can warm your soul and excite your creative juices.

Join us for a colourful day!

COLOUR TEST SAMPLES

Treetops has been having a grand time these past few months creating NEW colours (seven Colour Harmonies and four new Solid Colours to be exact, but more about that in another newsletter...) We keep adjusting these colours until they meet our exact specifications. The upside for you is that we then put on SALE all of our experimental colours...

Currently on there are FOUR bundles of our special Silk Mesh fabric dyed in our New Colourway - Mulla Mulla (see above image). Each bundle is 2.25 metres long and cost $39. Below on the left is our first experiment at hand-dying our Nuance colour called Amethyst (since it is now sold out). There are a lot of tonal variations in these balls. One the right is our first attempt at a new colour called Deep Sea - which is a rich blue-green. Each 100gm ball is on sale for $15.50 (there are 10 balls in each colourway). There is also 10 balls of our New Colour Harmony Juliet which has been handled a little more than we would like... so it is also 15% off. Each 100gm ball is $15.50.

We won't be putting these one-off Sale samples on the website, so please email me your order directly at orders@treetopscolours.com.au. Be quick.... first in best dressed.

NEW PAJ SILK FABRIC ARRIVING SOON!

Silk prices have continued to rise since the pandemic. Mainly due to low stocks of dried cocoons in China. At present we are holding off on purchasing anymore light weight Paj Silk fabrics waiting for the prices to come down - therefore our 4.5momme and 5 momme fabrics stock levels are very depleted and will be out of stock for sometime.

Luckily our NEW heavier weight PAJ will be arriving soon! We have been continually asked if we have a slightly heavier fabric that will hold up to garment making.... so, after many months of negotiating with our mill in China, they have woven us an exclusive new Paj fabric weighting in around 5.3 momme. In anticipation of this new fabric arriving we are trying to make some space....

Beringbooding Rock and the Four Felting Amigos

When things get tuff - you can always count on your girlfriends to pull you through! My Kimono Poncho workshop here in Perth had a bit of a hiccup due to some Covid related issues. To finish off the garments, we were kindly invited out for the long weekend to stay at one of the ladies home which was located about 3 1/2 hours inland from Perth - in the heart of the WA wheatbelt. What a spot it proved to be and wildflower season was still going strong! After sewing and felting all the first day, we took the next day off and drove out to visit the local scenery and view the wildflowers. Below is a bit of an impromptu fashion shoot of the Four Amigos at Kangaroo Pool at Beringbooding Rock. The garment has now been re-named a Caponcho due to our ever evolving designs - turning it not only into a Poncho but a Cape as well.
