Nuno Felted Scarf
Time & Location
About the Event
Vera Neel is a very talented and established artist in this medium.
Nuno felting is a fabric felting technique developed by Polly Stirling, a fiber artist from New South Wales, Australia, around 1992. The name is derived from the Japanese word "nuno" meaning cloth. The technique bonds loose fibre, usually wool, into a sheer fabric such as silk gauze, creating a lightweight felt. The fibres can completely cover the background fabric, or they may be used as a decorative design that allows the backing fabric to show. Nuno felting often incorporates several layers of loose fibres combined to build up color, texture, and/or design elements in the finished fabric.
The nuno felting process is particularly suitable for creating lightweight fabrics used to make clothing.
This workshop will be on Sat, Sept 19 from 1 pm - 8 pm (snacks will be provided) &
Completion will be Sun, Sept 20 from 10 am-1 pm.
In the workshop we will make nuno felting small scarf, approx size 55' x 14' using pre-felt which we will do in class. You will do everything from scratch, including pre-felt with merino wool and learning how to make your own design in combination with silk. You will also get information about different kinds of wool and how to use it. Learning this technique, you will be able to make a larger scarf or wrap on your own.
