FELT SURFACES-LAYERS AND TEXTURES
2 Days $105
Sunday, March 11 & 18, 9am-3pm

Layering lightweight fabric with fine wisps of wool roving produces interesting textural effects. You could make a lightweight Nuno scarf. Or you could play with the same differential shrinkage for surface design on a thicker cloth. Compare felt you make with wool from different breeds of sheep along with a variety of fabrics. See the effects of even nonfelting fibers like silk. We’ll build and cut through layers, try inclusions and inlays…stitchery and needling too. The emphasis will be on usable sampling, problem solving and finishing techniques. ALL LEVELS WELCOME.
