Fundamentals of Sheer Felt Scarf Fabrics
October 14 – 16, 2011
A comprehensive introduction to making fine felt fabrics. Day One is dedicated to exploring fibers such as merino, merino/silk, bamboo/merino/alpaca, mohair, wensleydale and local Cotswold to make sheer cobweb felt fabric samples decorated with novelty fibers, soy, bamboo and silk. On Day Two you will work with fine merino roving to lay out and felt a lace-felt muffler. You can explore many designs and shapes, open spaces, carding/blending colors and color gradation. On Day Three you will create another light-weight neck wrap, this time using the nuno felting technique. With sheer silk or cotton fabric as your base ‘canvas’, you will sketch out your design. After making your selection of colors comes the fun part of laying out your personal imagery. Then the felting of your scarf can begin!
