NOTE: If you would like to take one half of this class — Japanese Shibori on PVC Pipe OR Nuno Felted Scarves — please call our office and we’ll make the arrangements for you.
Japanese Shibori on a PVC Pipe – (9:00 – 12:00)
In this hands-on workshop, participants will learn about “shibori”, the Japanese resist method of creating designs on silk using a PVC pipe. This is a unique process as we wrap our scarves around the PVC pipe and watch as our creativity takes over, spilling onto the pipe in layer after layer of color. You will also be given the opportunity to paint directly on your scarves. Each person will complete two finished scarves in this class. The science of art and the creativity of the individual unite in this workshop to produce a finished product that can be worn with pride or given as a gift.
Nuno Felted Scarves – (1:00 – 4:00)
In this class, students will learn how to create a nuno felted scarf using bits and pieces of wool, soap and water, agitation and lovely silk scarves. Nuno felting requires some upper body strength but this class is for all ages, teens to adults. Nuno felted scarves are sold in many fine gift shops. Here’s your chance to make your own.
Materials Fee: $22
