Nuno felting is the technique of combining wool and silk fibres with fabrics such as chiffon, organza and cheese cloth. The resulting fabric has unique textures as well as fantastic drape making it ideal for clothing and accessories such as scarves
Who Is This Workshop For?
This workshop is suitable for people who have wet felted before, who understand how to select and lay-out wool and silk tops and would like to develop their skills further.
Using a technique which is very similar to wet felting, we will delicately combine high quality merino wool and silk fibres with a light silk to create a beautiful scarf.
Don’t worry if you struggle for ideas – there will be plenty of samples around to offer inspiration and enough time for you to experiment with a range of decorative effects – play around with swirls, spots, spirals and much more until you’re happy with your design, and then it’s time to felt it!
What Should I Bring With Me?
You don’t need to bring anything other than yourself as all materials, including the silk scarves, are provided. It is advisable to wear comfortable clothes and shoes – nuno felting isn’t dirty, but does involve soap, water and a lot of elbow grease and so you may wish to bring an apron along!
This workshop also includes a buffet lunch – please let us know if you have any dietary requirements, allergies or intolerances when booking.
What Do I Take Home?
You will take home your beautiful, draping nuno silk scarf. The scarf would make an ideal present for someone special – or keep it for yourself and enjoy!
