Flyer Hanky Panky Nuno Scarf Workshop

Hanky Panky Nuno Scarf Workshop via FeltWest

This workshop sponsored by FeltWest will explore a unique abstract painterly-like method of working with Silk Hankies. Feltmaker's first impressions of Silk Hankies are usually one of frustration. Learn how to transform this experience into creative bliss. Silk Hankies possess unique properties which create gloriously lustrous and textural surfaces when laminated with minimal amounts of superfine merino and silk fabric.

We will explore design ideas including edge extensions, unusual bottom finishes as well as working your design on both sides. A variety of silk fabrics may also be incorporated into the design work. Specific fulling techniques will be taught to ensure proper quality felt. Embellishment ideas to be explored as time allows, particularly hand stitching with a self-made silk thread.

To be held at Craft House, Menora, Perth, Western Australia. Sat/Sun 4-5 June 9:30-4:30.

Zoom Workshop Natural Rhythms

ZOOM WORKSHOP - EXPRESSIONS OF INTEREST

Sensational Stripe Sequences
Based on Fibonacci’s Design Principles
3 hour Zoom Hands-on Conference with Nancy Ballesteros (Perth, Western Australia)

The Fibonacci Sequence was developed by an Italian mathematician in Medieval times. The principals are widely found in nature and the relationship of the numbers it produces creates proportions that our human brains find especially attractive. It is no surprise that these principles are widely applied by designers across various disciplines. In this zoom session we will learn how to take advantage of this principal in both our stripe sequencing and colour choices (no maths are necessary).

To begin our journey you will gain access to my 25min video on “How Fibonacci Design Principles can Reconnect Your Creativity”. In this video, commissioned by the International Feltmakers Association, you will learn about the magic behind Fibonacci’s Sequence and how I have apply his principles to my felting. It is essential viewing for our zoom conference.

During the Zoom Conference, we will begin by touching base on a bit of colour theory - an essential part of designing great stripes! Learn how to apply my easy formula for choosing sensational stripe colours.

Next will be a demo and hands-on participation to explore how fabulous stripes are created using WET wool techniques. You can focus on creating a small A-4 stripe sampler. There are very specific techniques for creating both linear and free-form stripes, we will cover as many possibilities as we have time for. Specific fulling techniques will also be discussed to ensure proper felting.

Feltmakers Ireland will be hosting a zoom meeting on the 28th May. It occurred to me that other groups or individuals might like to also host or join in a meeting as well. You can sign up at here Expressions of Interest for Fibonacci Zoom Workshop. We will send you information as it come available.
