Get ready to explore the fascinating world of nunofelting and create your own lightweight scarf at Pine Meadow Ranch Center for Arts & Agriculture.

This in-person event will take place on Saturday, March 2, 2024 starting at 9:00 AM (Pacific Standard Time).

During this hands-on workshop, you will learn the art of nunofelting, a technique that combines wool fibers with lightweight fabrics to create beautiful and unique scarves. Our experienced instructor Flora Carliele-Kovacs will guide you through the process, teaching you the basics and sharing tips and tricks to help you create stunning designs.

In this workshop we’ll discover possibilities of the nunofelting technique, leaving some open spaces in the silk. Flora will show you how to secure the design on the silk, and how to felt them in precisely and you’ll gain confidence to create more on your own.

Level of experience required: beginner to advanced

This workshop is one of two opportunities to explore the art of felting. If you’re interested in learning how to create a Felted Telescope or Rosette Hat on Friday, March 01, 2024, be sure to explore our other events.

While it’s not mandatory to sign up for both workshops, we highly encourage it.

Price: $85.00
