Thanks to the San Benito County Arts Council, I’ll be teaching an online felting workshop on Wednesday, February 17th from 7-9.
In this class, students will learn the following techniques of wet-felting, nuno-felting, and surface design. Students will learn the difference between types of wool and create samples of the various techniques.
The image above shows all three of the techniques.
Students will create felting samples not finished products, but they will learn what they can do with these samples.
This materials kit includes the following:
*1 oz of merino wool roving (dyed in varied colors)
*1 oz of natural Wensleydale/Romney wool roving (homegrown)
*assorted silk fibers and noil (dyed in varied colors)
*assorted yarns(dyed in varied colors)
*square of cheesecloth (for a nuno-felting base)
*square of synthetic material (for a nuno-felting base)
*netting (for covering the design in the felting process)
*solar pool cover square (for rolling the design in the felting process)
Items the student will need to provide themselves: soap, water bottle or sprayer, hot water, towels, a dowel or pool noodle for rolling the design, water-resistant surface, and optional extra fibers and yarns if desired.
In your order notes, you may specify if you prefer warm or cool colors, and I can accommodate your request. You may also specify what shade of natural roving you prefer from light grey to dark grey/brown.
