Nuno- Felt Wave Scarf- With Dawn Edwards

"Nuno" (which means “fabric” in Japanese) is a term now used to describe the felting of natural fibers (we’ll be using Merino wool) into a sheer woven fabric base (in our case, silk) to create a unique, light-weight fabric. Dawn will share with you a fun resist technique which creates a wave-like design element in your one of a kind scarf. Come explore the ancient art of felt-making with a modern twist. Your finished piece will be highly textured, flexible, and very beautiful.

Chiku Chiku Pincushion- Akiko Ike

  • Wisconsin Museum of Quilts & Fiber Arts (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

Artist Biography:

As a clothing boutique and gallery owner and Japanese native, Akiko Ike (pronounced “ee-kay”) , started big running stitch projects which she calls, “Chiku Chiku,” after she turned 60 years old. She loves fabric, and over the years, many stashes of Japanese “Boro” ended up in her possession. They include antique indigo-dyed cloth diapers, farmers' and fishermen work clothing and banners, and old (Boro) cloth used in Japanese households and mended many times over. She wanted to preserve these, and found ways to transform them into distinct, one-of-a-kind, free-style art pieces.
