Create a light and airy nuno-felted scarf in this one-day workshop. We will be felting with a palette of merino wool, and lightweight silk fabric in addition to using some resist and shibori techniques. One of the nice things about this scarf design is that very little wool comes in contact with the wearer’s skin, making it a great accessory for cool as well as warmer weather. This adaptable scarf pattern can be worn buttoned or draped.
Participants will create a soft, lightweight, and textural scarf using fine layers of merino wool, novelty fibers and a base of lightweight silk fabric. Learn how to choose materials and a surface design that can be elegant or playful, to suit your personal style.
This workshop is designed to give you a working knowledge of the nuno technique: a method of felting wool fibers into a fabric base. Participants will create their scarflette as they explore layout methods, fabric weights, and creative possibilities.
Please indicate your choice of a white or black silk base. Participants will get to choose two main wool colors to go with the base. Accent colors will also be available. If you already have pajama silk or silk chiffon (lightweight silk) fabrics, let us know.
