$100 = $75 tuition + $25 materials (hand dyed silk fabric and merino wool)
Teacher: Kim Hamlin
Get ready to play and have fun with fiber! In this beginner friendly class you will learn the basic techniques of nuno felting to make a one of a kind, reversible scarf.
First you will pick from our selection of hand dyed silk fabrics and wool roving to create a color palate and design for your scarf. We will then spend an hour or so making a “test” swatch to see how the colors meld together and also calculate shrinkage. The rest of the class will be spent laying out our fibers, wetting down, rolling and shrinking our work. The end result is a soft, yet strong, material with unique texture and shine.
We will provide up to 3oz merino wool, up to 2 yards of hand dyed silk as well as the tools required for felting: 2 pool noodles, bubble wrap, tulle or netting, olive oil soap and a ball brause.
Materials to bring:
2-4 large bath towels (not your best guest towels!)
Small hand towel
Small plastic tub for water, like a dish tub.
Notebook and pencil/pen
Apron (If you’d like)
Something to carry your wet towels home in.
Wet felting is a physical process with a lot of standing. Wear comfy clothes and bring layers!
