Workshop Information
Have you ever wondered if the beauty in nature has any particular design method which it follows? Nancy Ballesteros of Treetops Colour Harmonies 5-day Natural Rhythms workshop will explore how the simple but powerful Fibonacci design principal can be applied to your nuno felting. This principal can be found everywhere in nature and is a great tool to use for designing.

In this workshop we will learn how Fibonacci can help us create sensational stripe patterns. You will have the option of creating structured stripe designs or more rhythmical and organic ones.  Learn Nancy’s new technique of working with WET wool for making clear sharp lines and GREAT superfine nuno cloth. Drawing from her 30+ years of designing colours, Nancy will also teach some practical ideas about designing with color.

Students will be able to choose what they would like to create from a versatile selection including a large Wrap with a hidden loop, a Single or Double Infinity Wrap, or a Single Infinity Poncho. Nancy will also share her No-Roll Felting Technique.
