Catherine O’Leary will be teaching us to use nuno felting to create a light-weight robust fabric completely of your own design. You have the option to bring along a template from your own sewing pattern and to use this to guide your felt design, or simple come along and make some scarves! At the end of the workshop you will have some your very own fabric, and the skills to create more.
Base Materials: I will send a list of recommended materials and suppliers to you and you can source your own.
Decorative Materials: You will bring along a collection of very lightweight or sheer silks, cottons or linens, and threads in colours and patterns that appeal to you to decorate your fabric. These could be secondhand scarves, offcuts or from your own stash.
Location: Church of Christ Hall Milverton Rd Hartwell

We are going to learn the pine needles technique which is a very fine lacy felt and incorporate that into a scarf. We will combine the technique with delicate fine regular feltmaking.
I was inspired by pine needles spread on snow in my home town of Sapporo, Japan. It is a unique technique to give you a different point of view about feltmaking, it is also something that only your hands can do.
Location: Toowoomba, University of Southern Queensland
