Fiber and Nuno Felting Retreat in LOT region of SW France
June 20-30, 2016
In this ten-day retreat we will explore the many possibilities for creating wearable art in a wet felting process called nuno felt. Discover the sculptural qualities of felting and the playfulness of surface design. You will learn the balance between wool and silk to create a light and airy seamless garments. We will talk about design, color harmony and use a variety of fibers for texture. Come prepared with sketch book and a sense of adventure.
Because our workshops are intentionally kept small (6-9) participants, you are guaranteed plenty of one-on-one time with Marjolaine.
All of our time is not in the studio however. We spend a good portion of our schedule visiting and enjoying the surrounding Lot region, with its quaint villages and historical sites and chateaux, as well as unforgettable vistas. We will visit various shops and markets and perhaps picnic along the scenic River Lot.
This is an opportunity for you to relax, rejuvenate and create! Please sign up by May 20th on the link above.
