Day one (June 25): learn the contemporary nuno-felted technique in which wisps of merino wool, silk, mohair locks, and other fiber embellishments are felted into a base of sheer silk gauze. You will explore thickness, texture, and surface design, and by day's end, create a featherweight felt scarf of your own design.
Day two (June 26): create one or two decorative pillow covers while learning felt collage techniques resulting in fabulous patterns and textures. Woven fabrics, designer yarns, and other textural embellishments will be felted into a wool base. Several options for pilow design and construction will be demonstrated.
