Join in a fun 3-day workshop in felting and design with Patti Barker!

Nuno Felt Sampling - The Sampler Series is an adventure in textural Nuno felt techniques--from simulated animal skins to roses and ruffles, we will entrap beads, learn mosaics and create raised shapes. Participants will come away with 5 10?x10? samplers, printed instructions, and skills to use in creating unique felted accessories and garments

Collage Nuno Felt Scarf - Participants have fun piecing together various silk remnants with merino wool, and wet felting them into a new art statement accessory.

Art Dolls - Art Dolls are as therapeutic as they are fun! Bring an art doll to life in this one day workshop. Participants learn to sculpt a doll head with a felting needle, paint watercolor "makeup," and finish by dressing and adorning your Art Doll.

About Patti Barker:
Patti is an award-winning felt wear designer and enjoys teaching others her original designs.

Artist's Statement:

"From the very beginning of my nuno felt experience, the process of transforming wisps of wool and silk into felted cloth with a little soapy water, has struck me as magical. It's that magical process, with its playful nature and subtle shifts, that leads to experimentation. My designs are the result of many hours of saying "what happens if..." As a result, they express fun and whimsy, yet are functional. If a person feels a bit more playful or beautiful while adorned with my work, then I have succeeded."

All of Patti's designs are produced with felted seams (no sewing). The fabric and the garment are created simultaneously, using wet felting techniques. What makes them unique is her hand-dying of elements used. She also hand-spins her embellishing art yarns and totally enjoys the playfulness they bring to the process.

Materials list:

All materials are included in the materials fee. Felting kits are included for student use.
