Dye your own silk scarves in the morning, and then design a nuno-felted scarf in the afternoon. Learn color theory and silk dyeing basics, safety tips, and eco-friendly dyeing methods. After steaming, your silk will be beautifully dyed and ready for an afternoon of felting. With your dyed silk as a base, apply soft wool and other exotic fibers to the surface and learn the steps to bond them into a beautiful nuno felted scarf. Keep in mind, some physical stamina is needed for felting classes. Materials fee $40, payable to instructor. **See supply list of items to bring to class**

An accomplished feltmaker, beader, and teacher for 20 years, Leslie Granbeck’s talents took a new direction when she discovered the technique of turning wool fibers into beads and jewelry. For Granbeck, feltmaking is magical, allowing her to turn simple wool fibers into beautiful scarves, purses, slippers, and garments. She teaches a variety of feltmaking techniques, and her classes are full of color, creativity, and adventure. (They also include a free workout as feltmaking is a “physical art.”) When not teaching, you’ll find her in the studio working on new fiber and bead projects. fiberenvy.net
