It was a beautiful week for making nuno-felted scarves, felted hats and for our first beginning weaving class of the season.
Could the sky have been more blue, the blossoms more delicate and perfect or the studios more exciting with new students and new things to learn? We don’t think so.
Combining lightweight silk and merino wool with instruction from Dawn Edwards, students created lovely nuno-felted scarves and flowers. It was our pleasure to welcome Dawn as a new instructor at Sievers and to see all the finished pieces students made in class.
A tip of the cap to the Felt Hat class. Wow! So many choices from whimsical to classic shapes with added embellishments making them extra-special. Dawn’s own samples provided so much inspiration.
In Susan Frame’s Beginning Weaving class all the students were new to Sievers, reminding us of our first year brochure which stated, “most of our students are beginners and our teaching is mainly guided in this direction”. When it comes to beginning weavers, those words are as appropriate now as they were then.
Susan led the students through two projects during the class, the first, a scarf (or runner) and the second, a color gamp/sampler that incorporates many weaving patterns in one piece.
Felting and weaving, we certainly haven’t seen the last of you!Share Sievers with Friends...
