Nuno felt-making scarf workshop with Debra Esterhuizen



You will learn how to wet felt using a Japanese technique called Nuno felting where you will learn how to amalgamate silks, chiffons and merino wool (no sewing). Using these techniques you will create a wrap/scarf which is beautifully light and delicate yet extremely strong, suitable for both winter and summer use. Debra has a fabulous studio which will inspire your choice of colours. Debra has taught over 2000 people during her 15 years of felt making but she also draws on her lifelong experience of lecturing (previously in Psychology). Classes are relaxing (background meditation music creates a calm and therapeutic atmosphere where you will feel fully immersed in your creativity and fully relaxed) but you will also feel invigorated, inspired and full of joy as Debra's classes are also great fun. Good for beginners and expert felters. Car parks 50m and 300m please bring change. Please book early to avoid disappointment as the classes are held in small groups.

What's included in the price?

Materials are included in the price - you are welcome to bring your own choice of chiffon and silks, at least 1.5m and wools, or you can choose to use Debra's large selection of materials. For certain silks you will be charged extra but you can make a beautiful scarf from the silks included. Teas and coffees throughout the day are included but not lunch. You are welcome to bring a packed lunch or there are plenty of cafes nearby.
