Make a “Scarflette” with the Nuno Felting Technique

Posted by admin on March 26th, 2014

Be part of Stony Creek Library’s increasingly popular workshops!

Coming up is a one day felting workshop held at the Stony Creek Town Hall on Saturday, April 12 from 10am to 5pm. Designed for beginners to intermediate felt makers, participants will be introduced to the nuno felting technique. Students will learn the nuances of making technically proficient and gossamer nuno felt, using superfine merino wool fibers, and a length of lightweight silk fabric as they create a “scarflette” with their own surface design. As quoted by instructor Robin Blakney-Carlson, “The characteristics of nuno are very different from traditional wool felt, and the technique requires a different approach. Today, nuno is one of the fundamental techniques used by contemporary feltmakers world wide.” Cost to attend is $15 per person, materials are included. Class size is limited. Please call the Stony Creek Library to enroll at 696-5911. A bag lunch is necessary for this class, or take-out will be available at the Stony Creek Market Place.
  The above event is made possible, in part, with public funds from the New York State Council on the Arts Decentralization Program, administered locally by the Lower Adirondack Regional Arts Council.
