 Description: 

This is what we shall be doing on the Nuno workshop , binding wool fibres with fabric, using soap, water and friction. Once we have made a  samples using this method we will stitch them together to create a larger sheet of fabric,which will slow stitch further.

Explore the wonderful world of Nuno, a felting technique of binding lightweight fabric and wool fibre to create beautiful fabrics together.
1st day will be taken up by sampling a wide range of fabric to see what textural affects we can achieve .
2nd day we will be stitching our samples together to create large patchwork fabric  that can be used in a variety of different ways.

A note about the fabric –

It is important to use a light weight loosely woven fabric, the best kind of weaves for Nuno are silk chiffon, georgette, cotton scrim, muslin cheesecloth and light weight cottons. Silk headscarves with a pattern is fine, the fabric does not need to be plain! Have a look in charity shops or TKmax, as they all have a good selection usually. Indian scarves are also light weight and lovely to felt. If you have any problems with this then please give me a call or send me an email .

I look forward to working with you, Clare
