This month Jeanette showed us how to make a nuno scarf using ribbon or cord as a resist. After they were felted we then cut along the resist lines. We then ended up with a lovely frilly scarf.
Everyone was so busy laying out their merino tops.
Lisa decided to use one of her beautiful painted scarves.
I can’t wait to see the beautiful results of everyone’s hard work.
This month we practised techniques ready to make items for our exhibition in November.
Lesley is happy with her felted ball while Erica thought her’s looked like eyes.
Roza and Kerrie made ‘cracked mud’
while Judy made a flower and Helen did some beautiful shibori.
We also had ‘show and tell’ with our beautiful scarves that we made in May.
Lisa showed us how she paints and felts her beautiful scarves over 2 days in May. The first Monday we painted our silk scarves with Sun Dyes. We all scrunched or folded our scarves, then we applied several colours of Sun Dye using sponge brushes.
After painting our scarves we put them outside in the sun to dry. Unfortunately the sun was not hot enough in late Autumn so we had to carefully fold them in plastic and take them home to dry.
The following Monday we looked at Lisa’s beautiful felting and felted our own.
Our painted scarves looked lovely
and during the felting process.
