Fabulous Felted Featherweight Scarf
Workshop by June Hope
June Hope is a Tasmanian textile artist who specialises in traditional felting with a contemporary twist. Her works include wearable and visual arts.
This fun day will give you a sound foundation in nuno felt-making techniques enabling you to continue to work independently, letting your imagination run wild.
In this workshop you’ll create a delightful lightweight ‘nuno’ felted scarf. Using silk or other natural open-weaved fabric, you’ll combine fabric with fleece to produce the lightest felt you can imagine.
No experience necessary. You’ll leave with your own fully completed personal masterpiece.
There is a requirement list for this workshop which will be supplied upon enrolment.
Fabric and felting supplies will be able to be purchased at the workshop.
