Join fiber artist Bev Thoms for a 3 hour nuno felt scarf class on Saturday, November 17th, 1-4 pm. Nuno is a Japanese word for fabric. Nuno felt is a fabric made by felting together wool and light weight fabrics, such as silk or cotton. During the felting process, the wool fibers migrate through the weave of the cloth. When the wool fibers shrink the other fabrics are gathered into a wonderfully textured fabric. The possibilities for combining transparency, wonderful texture and layering of luxury fibers creates fabric that is only limited by your imagination.
In class you will learn the art of making a beautiful ethereal scarf using wet felting techniques. You will learn how to layer wool, silk, mohair, glitz and yarn onto a silk scarf, and then transform them into your own unique creation.
This is a very 'physical' class. Be sure to wear loose comfy clothes and shoes!
