We’re hoping that Sharon’s latest examples for the intermediate nuno felted shawl workshop will spark some excitement for you if you’ve taken our nuno felted scarf class, but were never inspired to continue felting after the workshop ended.
This workshop now includes instruction on both nuno felted, and wet felted, pieces. This means that students who enjoyed the drapey results of nuno felting, can dive in deeper by learning how to combine separate pieces of silk, create intentional puckers and shapes and manipulate the silk to form shaped edges, such as scallops. Additionally, students who wanted something a bit more substantial than the nuno felted scarf can learn how to create a piece entirely out of wool, without the silk. Regardless of your preference, Sharon also teaches students who are interested how to create holes, the best way to incorporate lots of textural fibers, how to make a scarf reversible, and, because this is a level 2 class, how to save yourself the rolling, and use the dryer.
Yep, you read that right! If you thought the nuno felted scarf was too much work, of if you have back/wrist/leg pain, this class skips the rolling and shows students how to use a good old clothes dryer to do the work for you. Not only is this technique easier on you, but it’s also quicker, and allows students more time to focus on design, color and fiber options.
Below are Sharon’s newest examples of techniques (and possible designs, though those are limitless and entirely up to each student) included in the intermediate nuno felted shawl class.
