Felting fun at Appalachian Center in Norris, Tennessee

A Saturday in March I had the pleasure of having 6 wonderful ladies come for a Nuno-felting workshop at the Appalachian Arts Craft Center in Norris. It is a small town in east Tennessee, promoting local arts and crafts. The Gallery features textiles, wood crafts, pottery, jewelry, photographs, paintings, class works and paper art. If you are in the area, stop by and check it out.

Karen, Beth, Darlene, Sheila, Julie and Cindy chose the silk they
wanted to use. It was white, black or dyed by me. All options
worked great, and we ended up with a very attractive assortment
of scarves.

A few more lay outs. Top pic is Darlene's bronze dyed silk and Karen's multi-colored silk.
The bottom pic has Beth's white silk base and Cindy's black silk.

Julie is trowing her scarf to finish the felting process. She worked a very light weight white scarf in beautiful spring colors, purples, greens and yellow

 Some of the felted scarves, after drying they can be steamed to hold the shape and add softness to the wool.
