2 DAY NUNO SCARFLETTE/SHAWLETTE Workshop with Jean Gauger
In this beginner-friendly class, you will learn how to make a beautiful nuno collage scarflette/shawlette. Learn the fundamentals of nuno felting along with some of the unique techniques even the top felt makers use! You will be making a sandwich of silk/wool/silk with very little wool so you will have a masterpiece even after one class. Jean will take all the mystery out of nuno felting and you will go home with your very own treasure. You will learn how to make nuno dreadlocks, ruffles, eyes and edges.
Jean Gauger creates unique art-to-wear nuno pieces as well as home decor, journals, handbags, and framed art. Originally a knitter, she discovered wet felting and has been hooked ever since! Jean teaches and shares throughout the United States, Australia, Canada and now at The Aya Fiber Studio. Her work is on exhibit at the Kent State University Museum in an exhibit entitled Entangled: Fiber to Felt to Fashion. She also has had articles and tutorials in the Australian fiber magazines Textile Fibre Forum and Felt and was recently interviewed for Fiber Art Now FANfare.
