What happens when you bring fine merino wool together with a light, gauzy fabric? You get texture galore.
From ruffles to puckers to subtle texture, there is endless possibility when working wool through fabric and then letting the magic of felting happen.
The weekend of April 26 and 27th, I will be teaching a two-day workshop at the Pacific Northwest Art School in Coupeville on beautiful Whidbey Island. Students will spend time experimenting with various fabrics to achieve different textures. Once they have sampled, they will create a scarf, wrap or shrug.
Tuition: $255, material fee: $40, registration fee: $15

As part of my new fiber arts business, SpiderFelt, I’m going to offer a series of five how-to workshops in my home on Wednesday mornings from 10-12pm, starting October 3rd.
Topics include: Felting Basics, Felt Packages (sweater soaps and treasure boxes), Needle Felting (embellishments and 3D finger puppets), Art Felt, Felt Resists and Nuno Felting.
If you would like more details, or know someone in the Seattle area who might be interested, please leave a comment with your email address and I will forward a pdf with the workshop details.
Edit: I’ve received responses from two people interested in an evening class. There is a classroom available for rent in the evenings near my home that would work; if we had six people in a workshop, the workshop would be an extra $4/person. Let me know if this interests you.
