(402) Nuno Felt to Dye For
During this workshop we will both dye silk and then nuno felt on it. This workshop is a great opportunity to learn a bit about dyeing silk and then learning the lovely art of nuno felting onto it. Once you have this skill, you can then create multiple pieces of nuno felt for future sewing projects, as well as other wonderful wearable wraps, scarves, even hats. Color, silk and wool, now what could be better than that, really?Workshop #: 402
