Felt Great for the Holidays
November 12, 2011

What if we could let go of holiday stress? What if all our unrealistic expectations for the “perfect season” could be transformed into a spirit of celebration that truly expresses who we are and what we value?

Date and time

feltmaking suppliesSaturday, November 12, 2011
10 a.m.–12:30 p.m.

Description

Felt Great for the Holidays is an unconventional workshop that starts with a deceptively simple creative act: you’ll craft one or more felt ornaments or small vessels by wrapping wool around a 3″ plastic ball. Color, texture, soap, and water create an environment of festivity and fun within which we’ll explore anxiety and anticipation, creativity and celebration, fellowship and transformation, improvisation and surprise.

No experience is necessary for this workshop. Just bring a towel, a plastic bag, and your curiosity. …more

Nuno Felting at Lone Star College–Montgomery
November 11, 2011

Date and time

Nuno feltFriday, November 11, 2011
11 a.m.–1 p.m.

Description

Join artist Gika Rector for this introduction to the magical process of making nuno felt. It is an amazingly light fabric made by felting a bit of wool into a loosely woven natural fiber fabric. Perfect for our southern climate, nuno felt has exciting possibilities for creating custom fabrics. The underlying woven fabric adds strength and drapability while the wool/felt adds texture, color, and endless design possibilities.

Materials: This felting technique uses water, so please bring a towel.

Level: Beginner—no knitting involved!
