Instructor: Gail Maraman
Supply fee to the Instructor: $10.00 includes all supplies, textiles and fiber.
Just in time for fall and the holiday gift giving season, learn how to make a beautiful featherweight scarf with a totally unique surface design. With wool felted onto a loosely woven fabric, such as silk, the scarf takes on an “elephant skin” texture. This scarf can be worn year round and will be a vibrant accessory to any outfit. You will complete this scarf in a half-day workshop, but will learn a technique that can be used for many future applications.
A note from Gail:
Soon after learning how to manage a small sheep farm, I began experimenting with wool and felt, as well as a variety of dyeing techniques. Since then, I have been hooked on felting and consumed with designing and creating all things (from practical to whimsical) made of felt. Over the years, I have also enjoyed teaching felting to students of all ages. I have had the opportunity to present and teach felting classes at Columbus College of Art and Design, John C. Campbell Folk School, Miami CraftSummer, Shepherd’s Corner, fiber arts groups, community centers, and youth groups.
