Nuno Felting: Scarves & Wraps
Scarves: Many of us don't leave home without them. They are imperative in the winter but they can also simply be fashionable. In this class you will learn the modern wet felting technique called Nuno which creates a durable, elegant and warm material by combining wool with silk or other lightweight fabric. They will be of your own design, and definitely unique, beautiful and warm. Nuno felting is especially exciting because it is a bit like painting with wool on a silk canvas with an unpredictable outcome. Students are invited to bring silk, organza, nylon or chiffon scarves to be transformed by adding wool fibers. Silk scarves will be available for purchase if needed. Come with a sense of adventure and patience!
