nuno felted luxury scarf

During this two-day workshop, students will learn how to create a very textured and unique surface by felting merino wool onto silk fabric. Students will learn the nuno felting technique by learning the basics of felting: shingling, laying out wool, rolling and agitating. Students will spend the first half of the first day making samples to understand how wool acts and how to create texture with wool. During the second half of the day, students will spend individual time with instructor consulting design, color and composition. The execution of the scarf will take place during the second day.

barcelona vest + SURFACE DESIGN

During this three-day workshop, students will learn how to create a very elegant and wearable felted vest while applying different textural and printing techniques. During the first two days, students will learn how to design the surface of the silk with paints and inks by printing, stamping, rubbing, carving stamps, painting, writing and stenciling. During the remaining two days, students will be able to use all the material they have designed to make a seamless and reversible nuno felted vest. Students will learn how to nuno felt and how to work with different layers of silk and wool to create an interesting gradation of colors on both surfaces of the vest, maintaining their original design as a focal point. The workshop will end with a demonstration of different possibilities for creating several closures for the vest.

beyond felting: SILK + WOOL + PAPER*

During this two-day workshop, students will learn how to create a textured and unique surface by felting merino wool onto mulberry paper, and vice-versa. Paper is a material that provides certain tactile qualities, while adding more structure to the felt. Students will learn how to combine these two materials, how to trap the mulberry paper into the surface with wool, and how to felt both of them together. Students will use this technique to create several 12”x12” pieces, which can later be applied to garments, accessories and other felted work.

On the second day you will learn how to combine this technique along with other natural dyeing techniques, and on the third day, you will learn how to make an indigo batch and combine it with the eco printing technique. This workshop will also cover more natural dyes and painting with pigments.

SURFACE DESIGN, TEXTURES & COMPOSITION in FELT

In this unique felting workshop, participants will create a large felted art piece by applying different felting, textural, stitching and dyeing methods. We will explore the various techniques behind ‘painting with wool’ and how to incorporate it into your work. We will also modify the look and design of various fabrics using natural dyeing techniques including rust; where iron oxide acts as a coloring agent leaving a permanent print with great potential for decorative stitching. A variety of stitch techniques will be shown to add texture to the felt surface, while hand stitching also acts as a quiet method for reflection by which to build one’s visual narrative and sensory experience. Each day there will be time to work on specific exercises, brainstorming sessions and problem-solving challenges that, with the tutor’s guidance, will expand your personal project. The workshop also includes several Powerpoint presentations showcasing inspirational pieces from various textile and fibre artists. Material Fee: approx. $35

Slow Stitching

Explore line, color, and stitch at a contemplative pace. Slow down your felting, your stitching, your practice, your breath so you can absorb new ideas to inspire your making. Consider examples of artists from around the world who practice slow stitching on a daily base. "As you practice slow and intentional stitching, your life, your attitude, your creativity, your health, your spirituality....all of it will benefit as a result" - Mark Lipinsky. All levels.
