Create a one of a kind wet-felted scarf in this one day workshop! Learn from the talented Christianna Ferguson. This workshop is an introduction to the wet felting technique. We begin with merino wool roving and create our own unique textile by adding water, soap and friction. Participants will learn how to layer, attach cords, and how to mix fibres to create different colour effects. We also explore the use of pre-felts to achieve distinct patterns in our felted pieces. Spend the day learning from a knowledgeable local artisan and leave with your own one-of-a-kind piece of wearable art! All supplies required to make your one-of-a-kind scarf are provided, and no experience is necessary. This workshop is limited to 6 participants, so register early to avoid disappointment!
