May Toss n Tell – Nine Ways to Lay Wool
Feltwest is very pleased to have Nancy Ballesteros from Treetops Colour Harmonies this month with her very informative 9 Ways to Lay Wool.
Did you know there are 9 different ways to lay-up wool tops for felting? Come along to the Feltwest demo/activity and learn how and why there are so many methods? Nancy will demonstrate each method and explain its use. Would you like to create felt with more stretch? Interested in creating a particular colour pattern with your multi-coloured wool tops? All will be revealed… You are welcome to stay and have-a-go at laying out some of the methods after the demonstration.
Nancy Ballesteros has passionately worked with textiles and colour all her life. She was introduced to spinning, felting and dyeing while at university studying Veterinary science; however, her artistic endeavors quickly took over her life. In 1987 she hatched a fibre business called Treetops Colour Harmonies where she designs colours which she dyes on wool and silk textiles. She has been creating felt for over 30 years now. Nancy has taught across Australia, Europe and the USA. She was instrumental in developing the technique of Silk ‘Paper’. She has written about felting in numerous publications and participated in workshops and master classes.
