Description

Take Nuno Felting to a new level with this organic floral fantasy Shawl. Learn to use plastic resists and Pre Felt to fashion three dimensional flowers and vines for a couture quality shawl that sparkles with Swarovski Crystal! Students will use hand-dyed merino wool, hand dyed silk chiffon, silk ribbons, hand-dyed cotton gauze, silk hankies, spectacular Swarovski Crystals and other fanciful embellishments to felt an incredible piece of wearable art. The shawl pictured sits slightly off the shoulder and is perfect with your favorite little black dress or thrown over a pair of jeans and your favorite T-shirt. The juxtaposition of texture in this piece is truly sublime—a definite statement piece! A delectable assortment of colorways will be provided so that each participant will have an opportunity to choose her favorite.
 

Pat will be assisted by her good friend, Monica Zavala-Durazo, a talented felt artist from the great state of Arizona.
