About the Event
Sure, hand-felted scarves and wraps are delightfully snuggly in cold winter weather, but not all felt is alike! Cobweb felt scarves are light, airy, and lace-like. They are perfect for the shoulder seasons as a delicate and colourful accessory. In this workshop, which is suitable for all levels, participants will make a cobweb felt scarf from start to finish out of fine merino wool, adding embellishment fibres like beautifully soft silk.
Your Instructor, Donna L Bennett, is a textile artist and experienced educator who will guide you through the process and provide you with the materials needed to make a scarf that is sure to become a cherished statement piece.
Note to Participants:
Wet felting can be challenging for folks with back issues because frequent bending from the waist is required. Also, wet floor around your work space can pose a slipping hazard.
- Clothes you don’t mind getting wet (a water repellent apron is an option but not essential); Do not wear clothing with loose, dangling sleeves
- An old bath towel and a large bag for taking your wet felted piece home in (it will still be wet at the end of the session)
