Create a beautiful, lightweight felted cowl that is both warm, and a delight to wear! In this course you will learn about the basics of nuno-felting, and the materials and techniques necessary to create this unique form of wearable art. In class we will use those techniques to create a lightweight and beautiful accessory that will have everyone in awe once they hear that you made it yourself!

This class is for adults, ages 18 and up. Felting can be repetitive and labor intensive. Please be prepared to stand for significant portions of class time. Special felting tools will be available, and alternate rolling techniques can be used if standing is a challenge. Wet felting is wet and soapy at times, and hand dyed fiber can sometimes bleed dye. Please wear appropriate clothing, bring several old bath towels, and be prepared to have some ‘good clean fun’.

Supply fee of $25 in addition to the course fee will include: superfine merino wool, silk chiffon scarf base, olive oil soap, and use of instructor’s equipment necessary for felting.

Other materials students will need to bring are 3-4 old bath towels and a plastic bag to bring wet towels and project home. Lunch is not supplied. Please feel free to bring a snack or a bagged lunch.
