(CANCELED) Nuno Felt Scarves (wet felting) w/ BONNIE HIMBERG

May 23 @ 10:00 am - 2:00 pm

An Introductory Class in Felting 

Bonnie will provide a hands-on experience in several felting techniques – and allow you to create your own piece.

Felting is similar to painting and collage – combining fabrics, fibers and trims. Once the work is laid out, the felting process begins – a series of steps using soap and hot water – done by agitating, rubbing, rolling and throwing – all of which will interlock the fibers and make a fabric. 

 

Sorry, this workshop had to be Canceled due to lack of advance registration. We may reschedule at a different time, please contact the office if you’re interested!

 

 

$55, $44 OHCA members. Materials fee $15

 


ABOUT BONNIE

Fun, fabric, fiber and function have been the core of my artistic journey since I was a child. Raised in Mexico, my first large installation as a teenager was a set of yarn headboards inspired by the Cora Indian technique of yarn appliqué. I spent my summers as a apprentice to a batik artist in Mexico City.

Travels and an M.A. in textiles led me to an exciting teaching career at Fort Mason Art Center in San Francisco; art exhibitions, awards and many trade shows such as the American Craft Council and Rosen throughout the country established my Bonika butlers and benches as a well-known whimsical and functional art form.
