 Elegant Felt -- Sumptuous Surfaces
Date: February 20, 2011
Supply Fee:  $15
Time: 10:00am-5:00pm
Class Description:
Take felt making to the ultimate level. Submerge yourself in sumptuous silks, yummy yarns and fabulously fine fibers to create felt scarves and wraps that demand to be touched. Explore the latest products made especially for fiber artists interested in superior surface design.

This 1-day workshop (10:00 am - 5:00 pm) will afford students a variety of different techniques to produce beautiful felt for garments and accessories. Using superfine merino wool, a gorgeous assortment of hand-dyed silk fibers, lightweight pre-felt yardage, gauzy woven fabrics, and an assortment of funky yarns, students will learn how to create a variety of surface textures that can be transformed into clothing, accessories or wall-art.  The morning will be devoted to sampling, while the afternoon will take these techniques to produce a finished scarf.

As the owner of Outback Fibers, Jill has access to the largest selection of fibers available, much of which will be made available for use during this workshop. Overwhelm your senses with colors and textures that will stimulate even the inexperienced fiber artist.

If you own one of the new needle-felting/embellisher machines, feel free to bring it along to the class for additional creativity.
