Nuno Felting Scarf Workshop l


Students will learn how to create a beautiful 'Nuno Felt' (Nuno means fabric in Japanese)
Nuno-felting is gaining attention in finer galleries and the fiber art world for the amazing lightweight, highly textured fabric resulting from its use. Nuno is easy to learn and involves felting a small amount of colored wool into a pre-existing fabric, such as silk. No felting experience is necessary.

Please, since you're standing most of the time and get wet occasionally during class, I advice to wear comfortable shoes and clothes
.






Students will create a seamless felt hat with unique style and functional piece of artwork to wear, by using roving and plastic template.
Different styles to choose.
Template plastic will be yours to take it home.

Please, since you're standing most of the time and get wet occasionally during class, I advice to wear comfortable shoes and clothes.

Students must bring:
large bath towel

 February 5th, Nuno Scarf Class 11-4:30

Presenting ...



Happy New Year all!!!
As one of my New Year's resolution. I will be more regular on this blog, so I will start by posting at least once a week , on Monday , about my favorite Feltmakers... the ones I think who really pushes to the edge...

I am starting with this english artist from Worcester, Worcestershire. Her name is Caroline Merrell from Funkyfeltandfibres.

Applying different materials and techniques all combined , she creates incredible textures in her pieces.

Enjoy it!
