Nuno Felt Collage Class with Melinda LaBarge
Saturday, September 7th, 2019 – 9:00 AM to 3:00 PM – 4 Seats Available
The Meredith Fine Craft Gallery will be offering a Nuno Felt Collage Class with League-juried fiber artist, Melinda LaBarge
at the Meredith Community Center.
If you have never felted before or if you are looking to take your skills to the next level, this class is for you! Melinda will meet students at their skill level and work with them individually. No felting experience is necessary.
Nuno is the Japanese word for cloth and the technique bonds loose fibers, such as hand dyed silk, merino roving, silk roving, printed silk materials, and other dyed locks onto a sheer silk fabric. The use of floral silks in unique color palettes produces a handmade product that is reminiscent of impressionist paintings.
There will be an abundance of materials available to choose from to create your own special scarf, in whatever design and color you wish to make. Additional materials will be available for sale, if you wish to make more than one scarf.
Students are encouraged to bring a lunch or snack to satisfy themselves through this 6-hour class.
*Please note that this class will be held at the Meredith Community Center (Room B) located at 1 Circle Drive in Meredith, NH.
Tuition is $68 per student with a materials fee of $65, paid directly to the instructor on the day of the class. A materials list will be provided upon registration and/or inquiry.
Space is limited. Pre-registration is required.
