Nuno Felt Workshops –

11th May 2019, 14th September 2019  

Nuno felting is a method of using fabric to support the fibre and it is possible to create beautiful effects – ruching of silk, voile or muslin fabric.  Initially it seems the opposite of wet felting because at first you do not want to make felt, you need the fibres to penetrate the fabric.  This part of the process is slow, whilst the final stage is very quick (you’ll be pleased to know!).

Please contact me if you are interested in learning how to create Nuno felt.   Workshop cost per person will be £70.00 and participants will need to bring suitable fabric to work on, which I can advise on.  I will provide fibre, some fabric and other equipment.
