Nuno Wet Felting with Clare Bullock

£60

Nuno is the combination of merino wool and sheer fabrics fused together with soap, water and friction. By using the wet feltmaking technique to fuse these fabrics and fibres together you will create a new type of felt which will appear fluid and textured. Pieces can be further stitched with either hand or machine at home.

Description

This type of felting lends itself to be worked further with hand and machine stitch.  We will make a variety of pieces that can be worked together with stitch on the final afternoon. This is a great opportunity to try a selection of different weights of fabric to see just what textures we can discover.

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 TKmaxx, as they all have a good selection usually. Indian scarves are also light weight and lovely to felt. Any questions contact Alex
