Create fabulous felt and nuno-felt hats! We will focus on techniques, patterns and concepts, using both open and closed resists (and some multiple resists) to design our sculptural felt creations. Such a dilemma—so many hats and only one head! Which style will you choose? Fun, whimsical or classic, the choices are yours. You’ll purchase and bring your preferred color choices of Merino wool tops to class (Source list will be sent to you when you register.) and also have the option of incorporating light-weight silk fabrics for nuno-felting. The artistic possibilities are many, with functionality as an added bonus.
