Nuno Felt Scarf Class
125.00

Sunday, June 16 | 9am-5pm

Signup deadline: June 9

$125 = $100 tuition + $25 materials to get you started.

Teacher: Kim Hamlin

————————————————————

Get ready to play and have fun with fiber! In this class, you will learn the basic techniques of nuno felting to make a one of a kind, reversible scarf. The end result is a soft, yet strong, material with unique texture and shine.

You will make a scarf very similar in style to those one shown here. One side will be one piece of silk in a single color, either hand dyed or white. You will then be able to layer different colors of wool and silk to design/embellish the top. At the end of class, Kim will demonstrate some simple embroidery stitching to add interest/texture to your finished work.

Class Materials

We will provide up to 3oz hand dyed merino wool, several pieces 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. (We will also provide yarns, curly locks and silk fibers for embellishing. We will have additional materials for sale in case anyone needs or wants more to complete their project or make another scarf. If you’d like to bring some of your own materials, please contact us first to make sure it will work!

PLEASE BRING:

  • 3-4 large bath towels (not your best guest towels, colors from the wool and silk may run and stain)

  • Small hand towel

  • Small plastic tub for water, like a dish tub or mop bucket.

  • Fabric scissors

  • Tape measure

  • Notebook and pencil/pen

  • Apron (If you’d like)

  • Lunch and snacks!!

Wet felting is a physical process with a lot of standing. Wear comfy clothes and shoes, and bring layers to wear.

There will be a short break for lunch. You can bring your own food or visit one of the many restaurants nearby. We also have a fridge and microwave in the shop you are welcome to use.

Swedosh Spoon Carving with Ian Trundy

Swedish Spoon Carving | July 27
from 65.00

Saturday, July 27 | 10am-3pm

(Signup Deadline: July 20)

$100 = $65 Tuition + $35 for knives

Teacher: Ian Trudy

Welcome to the wonderful world of slöjd!

Learn the fundamentals of carving creative and unique spoons that are sure to be cherished by all who use them. Class will cover material selection and wood related considerations, safety, tools and sharpening, techniques and tricks, and finishing. In short, you should leave with everything you need to know to start your own creative journey.

There is a class materials fee of $35 to cover a hook knife and a straight slöjd knife for students and all other materials, wood, and sharpening equipment will be provided. However, if students prefer to purchase their own straight slöjd knife and hook knife the fee shall be waived. I personally suggest looking at Morakniv or Beavercraft knives, both found on Amazon.com. These make good beginner knives and aren’t too expensive. Both are pictured.

For $15 a catered lunch by Cafe Nomad will be provided, payable on the day of class. This includes a sandwich, chips, pickle and a cookie. We will have a variety of beverages to choose from as well. Please specify your food preferences during the next step.
