FELT THIS! Wet Felted Nuno Gauze Wrap class     Minimum number of students=4      $75

Saturday, April 21st, 10-4pm, Potwin Presbyterian Church

Supplies you need to bring: An old towel to transport your wrap home, and four or more ounces of dyed wool roving-NOT SUPERWASH! I recommend merino or BFL blends of no more than 30% other fiber like silk or bamboo.  (Instructor will bring soap, bubble wrap, and other tools for wet felting and will provide the cotton scrim-cheesecloth-for your wrap. Dress in comfortable clothing that could get wet and non-slip shoes)

Create a lovely wrap using the nuno felting technique to “laminate” the cheesecloth with the fibers you bring to class. Explore the technique, and different design possibilities as you layout your fibers in an incredibly thin layer, and work them into the fabric to create a one-of-a-kind wrap to be worn in every season of the year.
