Learn how to create beautiful soft flowing scarf that is warm and wonderful for winter and a comfortable light throw for a cool spring evening. Working with a fine silk base and layers of merino wool, students will create unique, colorful scarves while learning the fun technique of laminated felting. Felting involves the layering of silk chiffon with wonderful colors of soft merino wool and added embellishments of silk fabrics and yarns. This mixture is then wetted down with warm soapy water and then rolled to cause agitation and make the piece "felt. Students are encouraged to bring color inspirations in the form of a piece of yarn or a picture of a favorite piece of clothing. Students will complete several scarves throughout this one-day workshop. This class requires some physical activity.
