Arts classes

The Arts Council is offering another series of Fall into Art  fall and winter classes for adults.

The first one will be on Saturday, Oct. 27 and will feature Nuno Rusca Felting with Barbara Wellborn. Nuno Rusca Felting takes a gossamer base fabric such as silk, fine cotton, rayon or wool and transforms and enriches it with a light weight application of wool.

Contrasting the shrinking wool fibre with a non-shrinking woven fabric produces a beautiful texture, or “rusca”, a medieval Latin term for “bark of a tree.”

Participants will complete two finished pieces of approximately 24 inches square after shrinkage.

No previous felting experience required. Registration is required.

There will be an Embellished Fibre Hand Stitching with Brandy Maslowski on Saturday, Nov. 3 and a Drawing and Painting from Life with Bill Hibberd on Saturday and Sunday, Nov. 18 and 19.
