Nuno Felted Scarf
Students will learn to create wearable art in the form of nuno felting. Nuno felting is a wet process of felting wool into a fabric such as silk. This workshop will have the option of doing a more advanced technique using a resist or more advanced embellishments. Barb will bring some samples of advanced designs and everyone can have fun experimenting. Beginners are welcome! $20 materials fee payable to instructor.
Students will create a unique 12×16 wall hanging of carded and prefelt wool, using the process of wet felting. Each person can make the design their own, or follow Barb’s example. Once your creation is complete, soapy water and friction will felt it all together. After the felting is complete and it is dry you will be shown how to stretch it over a canvas. Beginners are welcome! Materials fee $15 payable to instructor.
Create a wildflower garden using the swipe technique associated with acrylic pours. Students will mix paints with a pouring medium by tilting and swirling the canvas, and instead of a brush, gravity will be the tool used to move the paint across your 8X10 canvas. Beginner or expert artist, the results are unlike anything you have ever done before. All materials supplied!
