Wearable Art! We will combine found fabrics and embellishments with soft wool roving to create a unique, one of a kind scarf that you will wear with pride! Through the age old process of Nuno wet felting, we will fuse beautiful silk, rayon, cotton, and soft wool roving. In our time together, you will be able to create at least 2 scarves, possibly more. If you prefer, you can make a table runner, or a wall hanging using this same method. Feltmaking is magical and you will experience success with your first project. As the wool shrinks and fuses to the other fabrics, it creates such interesting textures and ruching. You do not need to have any prior experience with art. Possibly, you will have a new addiction!

I will supply all materials; my hand dyed and painted silk, thrift store finds of fun and funky fabrics, and luxurious soft merino blend roving that is so comfortable around your neck (no itching allowed!). The process of felting does involve some standing throughout the day, and rolling of the bundle, so if you are unable to be on your feet for periods of time, please let me know so we can make some adjustments.
