I just finished a fabulous 2 day workshop with six students at the Nelson Waldorf School. Three from Class 5, one from Class 7 and 2 from Class 8. We made fine scarves.
I had them draw a cartoon of their designs on paper first.
They put bubble wrap over their designs and laid out the wool for their designs on the smooth side of the wrap. Next they laid out a background layer and then a final layer to be the contrasting side.
rocked wrapped and rolled
Though I didn’t get any pix of it they also kneaded, threw, stretched and generally abused their pieces until they were thoroughly fulled. We undid the rolls several times to check progress and this is what we saw.
The girls worked hard and by day two most were ready to start doing some embellishing.
Two girls were away the first day so they didn’t get as far as beading and embroidery but they did manage to complete their scarves. Here are the six completed works.
And we finished these warm winter woolies not a moment too soon…..
