Felting is an ancient art that has recently grown in popularity. This workshop will give you a strong background in many felting techniques and will challenge both experienced and brand new felting students. We will explore Nuno felting and many textural and graphic effects that can be done in felting. We will start by learning to work with a resist by making a multi-layer 3-D felted flower. Knowing how to work with a resist leads us to being able to make seamless pieces & even add seamless pockets to our purses. These are the same techniques that are used in making seamless felted garments. A large selection of felting tools and supplies will be available for your use. Each student will make a felted 3-D flower, textures samples, and a unique felted or Nuno felted purse.
After this workshop you will be able to look at felted items and understand the techniques that have been used so you can make your own version of them.
