NUNO PINE NEEDLES SCARF
with special guest
LEIKO UCHIYAMA

Sat & Sun March 25 & 26, 2017  9:00 – 4:30 PM
$250 + materials

rbc-leikoI am excited to welcome my talented friend Leiko Uchiyama back to Luckystone.  Leiko always hits the mark for excellence in design and technique.  She creates perfectly executed felt- lightweight, flexible, but well felted and easy to wear.

(We won’t have time to make a wrap this large, but it is too beautiful not to share.)

Leiko’s Pine-Needle Nuno Scarf is my favorite accessory for its beauty, comfort and surprising durability.  In this workshop, Leiko introduces us to new properties of nuno felt, and a technique that I never thought possible, to create a nuno scarf.  Leiko has perfected a completely unique approach to feltmaking that takes no shortcuts to quality.  I highly recommend Leiko’s workshop to any serious feltmaker.  (This is one workshop that I enjoy repeating- Leiko has so much knowledge to share!)

“Pine-Needle technique is the unique technique of wet felt making.  I was inspired by the pine needles spread on the snow in one winter morning in my home town, Sapporo.  Pine-Needles is lacy fine felt, it is very soft and Leiko's Pine Needle Nunofelt Samplesdelicate but strong enough to wear.  This is something only your clever hands can do, and this is what I love.  This workshop is one of the variations of the Pine-Needle technique.  We combine the fabric and get a 3 dimensional effect.  It is fascinating to discover what wool can do for the fabric.” -Leiko Uchiyama

NEEDLE FELTED WOODLAND CREATURES
with special guest
JENNIFER FIELD

Sat & Sun April 22 & 23, 2017  9:00-5:00 PM
$250 + $30 materials to the instructor

I have had so many requests for needle felting workshops, but I wanted to find just the right feltmaker – Jennifer is IT!

Her work captures the detail and character of her subjects with such skillful technique.  In this fun & colorful workshop students will explore a variety of needle felting techniques to “sculpt” wool fleece into a woodland animal of their choice.  Students will learn how to create a sturdy wire armature, about animal proportions and how to sculpt a solid core in natural undyed wool fleece, using very sharp barbed needles.  Students will then focus on color selection and application and finishing details.  Glass eyes created by the Instructor will bring your creation to life.

chipmunk-jennifer-fieldThis is an advanced beginner friendly class, meaning some creative experience felting, or sculptural experience, is helpful. Kit includes extra felting needles, felting foam, armature wire, handmade glass eyes and wool fleece.  Materials list will be sent upon registration.
