Using Nuno felting techniques, be prepared to be elated as you transform layers of hand-painted silk, wool roving and silk embellishments into gorgeous flowing fabric. During the felting process, the wool fibers migrate through the weave of the silk and entangle, pulling the silk and any other embellishments along with them as they shrink. This results in an incredibly lightweight garment that drapes the body beautifully. In this half-day workshop we will cover design, layout, felting and fulling, creating your own art-to-wear. Beginner friendly. Students should bring along two old bath towels. Price includes a $30 materials fee
