Upcoming Workshops- Southern California

  I am so excited to be going to southern California in a few weeks. What a great way to start the New Year, with some great making, in a beautiful setting, with creative people!

There are still some spaces available in these classes. 
Wouldn't it be a great gift?  To have someone buy a workshop for you so you could start the new year learning a new craft, or to give to a friend so you can attend together.  I've done this with friends and family before, paying for the workshop for each other as a surprise. It is so nice go to a class together, sharing, making and chatting...

Nuno Felting- Fairy scarves:

as seen in Living Crafts magazine, Summer 2008

This gossamer light, wool felt wrap can be worn around the shoulders as a shawl, as a scarf or even as an overskirt; a luscious combination of silk and merino wool. Dressed up for formal events such as weddings and the theatre, or worn fun and funky with jeans and a tee. To just wrap one on is to feel more beautiful- regardless of the occasion!  We will explore many aspects of nuno felting, from making the sheerest of textiles to using nuno to create great surface texture for other projects.
Silk fabrics, merino wool and embellishments in a wide range of colors, all included.

Workshop Fee: 85.00, including materials
