Level: Beginners to intermediate
Location: HANGAR 391 Design Studio
Date: Sunday, December 13, 2015
Time: 10am – 3:30pm
Description: This workshop will take place at HANGAR 391, a small two story brick building in historic German Village. The studio is a very intimate space, which is wonderful for holding small workshops where you can get more concentrated attention.
You will be given a brief introduction into the various breeds and the unique characteristics of each wool, which will be helpful to consider when using the fibres. We will be using wool from several Lincoln Longwool sheep who happily live on Prairie Fields Farm in Orient, OH and local alpaca.
In this workshop, you will create your own unique scarf through learning the process of nuno felting. Nuno felting is a wet felting process where wool and other fibres are worked into a base fabric by scrubbing and rolling. Because the various sheep have different tones and textures, depending on the animal, your scarf will be unique to your personal preferences in colour and texture.
This is a beginner’s class, but it is helpful if you have felted before.
Registration fee includes materials, and light refreshments. There will be an hour-ish lunch break, where you can enjoy lunch at a number of local cafes, deli, and restaurants nearby.
At the end of this workshop, you will also have the option to buy more wool for future projects.
What will you go home with? A unique nuno felted scarf that YOU created, using local rare and beautiful wool, and the experience of incorporating local and 100% natural resources into your creation!
This class is limited to 8 people; Workshops will only take place if at least 4 people register.
