    Saturday, December 7 from 10:00 am-5:00 pm

    Seven-hour workshop with lunch break (please bring your own lunch)

    Skills Learned:
    In this workshop we will explore nuno (meaning cloth in Japanese) felting and learn how silk or gauze and other fibers attach themselves to each other to create very beautiful flowing fabrics. You’ll see how the silk maintains its lightness while the thin layers of wool that you add become a decorative element and add body to the silk. In this introductory workshop we will begin by creating a sampler to understand how placement and materials relate to one another to become one piece of fabric. We will learn how to add the wool in thin layers to retain the suppleness of the silk by designing with simple motifs for maximum success in the final outcome. In the afternoon you will create your scarf from designing to felting, resulting in a beautiful finished nuno-felted scarf.  You will have one additional scarf blank to take home to create another unique design.


    All materials you will need to complete a nuno felted sampler and one scarf, including silk blanks, wool and other fibers, yarn embellishments, and all supplies needed for the felting process.  Plus you will receive one extra silk scarf blank to make another one at home.

    Additional Info:
    Please wear clothes that can get messy and/or wet. An apron would be helpful. Please bring a couple of old bath towels to be used in the felting process. Please bring your lunch.

    Important Note:
    The process of felting requires a good deal of physical effort.  For success in this workshop you must be able to stand for a good part of the day and exercise your shoulders, arms and back for an extended period of time to complete the felting process. You may be a wee bit sore in those spots the next day.
