Felted Vessels & Bowls

- $75

Here is a fun way to create a 3 dimensional shape out of wool: in this class students will be felting over an inflatable ball to make a vessel or a bowl. We will explore different ways to manipulate the surface before and after felting. Materials used: dyed, carded wool and silk fibers. Absolutely no knitting is involved and no previous felting experience is necessary. Expect a bit of physical work while making felt. 
Materials will be supplied by the instructor at an additional cost of $15 per person. Please bring a plastic container, a bar of soap and 2 old towels to class.

Dye/Felt Combo

- $145

Have you seen those fabulous felted silk scarves in boutiques? Felting authority Piroska Toth and Master Dyer Lian Sawires have paired up to create a special 2-session workshop just for you. Learn about silk dyeing, patterning, color and visual texture while using shibori techniques to create and dye two beautiful large scarves. Then in week #2 you will felt one of your silks into a gorgeous creation.  Participants will use the softest merino wool, additional silk fibers and soapy water to roll all this into a one-of-a-kind “nuno” scarf. Instruction will be given as to how to manipulate color and texture, techniques for shaping and final finishing touches. No previous experience is necessary but expect a bit of physical work while making felt. All materials included.
