Description

We will use contemporary techniques to create unique and stylish accessories with luxury surface design. From flat felt to 3D objects without a single stitch - magic and tricks of modern feltmaking. Using natural fibers such as wool, silk, and bamboo, you will make your own special handmade neckwear, headband, purse, and so much more. Give them as gifts, or treat yourself!

About the Teaching Artist: Nelly Kouzmina is a self-taught fiber artist who loves the process of felt-making, sometimes more than the results!  Kouzmina loves to experiment with different fibers, objects, dyes, and more.  For her, felting is a liberation, passion, and love.
