NEW! Nuno Felt at Windrush Farm in Petaluma

If you want to learn how to make a nuno felt scarf, then this is the class for you!

This is a class great for beginners. The class is so much fun! Nuno felt is almost like making a collage, with so many possibilities with color, textures, shapes, fabric, etc. Once the basics of this technique are learned, the sky is the limit. I love to teach beginners because they show up to the class ready to experiment with something new and exciting. I also love teaching, because I always learn something new from my students. And to make it even more exciting, the setting is in a beautiful farm owned by my friend Mimi Luebbermann.

Oh, yes, my favorite line: Mistakes are a must!

New Class!! Learn to make a hat!

Hello Makers! West County Fiber Arts in Sebastopol will be hosting once again a felting class! I hope you can join me on this new journey. I will be teaching a Hat Making Class using a resist that will allow to create shapes, textures and to add your personal and special touch to your project. I will show how to design a hat from scratch. We will be starting by making our own pattern using our own measurements. It’s going to be a lot of fun!

You will be surprised at how many options there are when designing a hat. Lately, I’ve been immerse into hat making just because it is fun and to also have a few examples to show to my students for inspiration.

Spiral Hat

This is a hat that was ALMOST a failure! It was meant to be a rose, but instead it became something weird that started to look like a lump. Or perhaps a nipple?

I didn’t liked it at all! It looked somehow disturbing. So I decided to perform surgery with a pair of scissors. dsc_7769

This is much, much better. I’m thinking of adding some design elements with a sewing machine.
