Next Nuno Felt Scarf Workshop Feb 11th

Due to popular demand I have scheduled another beginners nuno felting scarf workshop in Grants Pass. It will take place on February 11th and is a wonderful workshop to take if you have every wanted to give felting a try. In this class we will cover the basics of how and why wool felts, how it migrates into fabric and we work through the entire felting process. 

The technique learned in this class will be the foundation required for moving on to more advanced felting projects. We will be using our upper body a lot during the felting process so some stamina and good upper body health is required. Here are some examples of the kind of scarf we will be making. Details for the workshop are below.

Fun Nuno Felt Workshop!

On the 10th of the month I gathered with some beautiful ladies and taught them the skills to create nuno felt. With some information and demonstration they proceeded to lay the fibers and work them into a one of a kind piece of wearable art. Here are some photos from that workshop. Each participant finished at a different time so, silly me, I didn't get images of their completed scarves - duh! Next time...






My favorite student!!!!

Thank you to the lovely ladies that brought such great energy and fun to the scarf workshop in Grants Pass. I enjoyed you so much and just love the wonderful scarves you created!

If you are intrigued by the images or the process and would like to take a class let me know. The next class will be February 11th in Grants Pass followed by a workshop with the choice of making a flower or a headband. Come and learn the ancient, earth friendly and amazing fine craft that is felting!

Great New Vests!

I recently made a couple of seamless nuno felted vests out of recycled and repurposed fabric. One is made from a repurposed cotton sarong using super fine merino wool and embellished with novelty yarn. I made it for Felt United Day inspired by the theme of water. The sarong is dyed with lovely blues and greens and at the bottom it said Bora Bora. The novelty yarn dressed it up wonderfully and reminds me of the kelp beds that sit just where the waves roll. The vest is revisible, seamless and completed with no sewing at all!




The other vest was made with a recycled piece of lavender nylon fabric I found at a thrift store. It is embellished with some shiny, iridescent dots. On the side with no dots I added 2 different purple wool yarns and a deep purple and shiny novelty eyelash yarn. It is stunning and I love it soooo much! This one is also reversible, completed without sewing, but also has a nice thick collar.

The Deep Sigh of Fall

Ahhhh, I love fall! Gaia, mother earth is relaxing and when I quiet my mind I can hear her deep sigh. The heat of summer has moved out and the air is crisp and clean. I feel renewed, rejuvenated and ready to really connect with nature.

As the temperature drops it's time for headbands, hats and jackets! Headbands are so versatile because they can also be used as ear warmers and neck warmers. If you're not a hat person a headband can be your best friend this time of year. Below are photos of a new batch that are available at Saturday Market right now! Holiday art and craft shows are gearing up and I will be at Artoberfest in Kerby, Pacifica Art's Guild Holiday Bazaar in Williams, Friend of the Library Holiday Bazaar in Grants Pass and North Valley High School Arts & Crafts show. Hope to see you at one or more!

Wide headband - great for dreads or thick hair!
Frilly Lace
Assortment of vintage lace
Silk & wool in burgundy fall tones
