Teacher: Leiko Uchi

Felting is one of the most ancient textile techniques in history. It is the magic of wool that allows you to create seamless 2D or 3D Pieces from fiber. The Pine-Needle Scarf is made with very fine lacy felt. The lad wool before felting will remind you of pine needles on the snow. Students will make a scarf after learning the basics with a small sample. It is amazing to see how the fine fabric behaves with very little amount of the wool.
