Experience the age old process of felting given a new spin. Using silk and wool we will create a masterpiece of wearable art, a table runner, or a wall hanging. Nuno wet felting is a fabric felting technique where wool is forced through an open weave type cloth such as silk chiffon. Using soap, water, and a bit of "elbow grease", the wool fibers migrate through the fabric, fuse, and crate a new and durable piece. Magic! Creating a unique fabric of your own design is rewarding and fulfilling. You will learn and experience new terms and techniques such as Ruching and Fulling, roving and shingling and much more.

There is standing and movement required to make this magic happen. If you have physical challenges that would make this difficult for you, please contact me so we can make arrangements for you. I want everyone to be able to experience this fun.

If you attended The Magic of Silk Painting workshop, please bring along the piece(s) you created for this workshop.
