Discovery: Versatile Viscose with Sara Quail
Following on from her September demo showcasing a myriad of ways to use viscose, join Sara for a more in depth session about the use of this very versatile fibre. She will be happy to explain and guide you in detail through a variety of techniques. Sara will bring around 30 viscose samples that include: Marbling, making viscose paper, graphic designs, textured elements, cobweb and faux nuno.
Significant variations are also achievable just by using different ratios of viscose and wool. If you haven’t worked with decorative fibre before, there is nothing quite like giving it a go to see if you like the result
Sara has utilised viscose extensively in her own work and will be very happy to discuss and share her knowledge and discoveries. This will be an informal and unstructured session based on the interest of the participants on the day. For making smallish samples, bring your normal felting kit as well as small carders or a dog brush if you have one.
This is an opportunity to utilise your wool odds and ends, as minimal wool will be required. The techniques suit a variety of decorative fibres, so bring any viscose, other plant fibre or silk fibre you may have. Viscose packs will be available to purchase on the day.
As Sara’s Unicorns are heading for greener pastures in 2024, available stock of viscose may be limited, but remaining stock will be heavily discounted. Cash preferred.
