A fabulous opportunity to create a beautiful scarf while learning how to Nuno Felt. You will learn how to fuse the traditional technique of wet felting with the contemporary nuno process to design and make a unique new fabric by combining wool fibres with silk chiffon to make a Scarf. 

 

During the day you will select the colour(s) you wish to work with and learn how to dye your silk chiffon fabric to coordinate with your design. You will gain an understanding of how and why wool fibres adhere to fabric, observe how different textured effects are possible using different weights and types of fabric and wool, and apply this knowledge to make your own scarf using silk chiffon.

 

An option to negotiate the focus of the workshop is available for 1-2-1 /private groups - for instance;  it can be delivered over two days with a focus on sampling with different fabric types for example cotton, silk habotai, margilan silk, silk chardan muslin which can then be incorporated into your scarf design or fabric panels. (Please note: these silks and longer delivery times will attract an additional cost).  

 

Please get in touch for more information, to discuss your requirements or to book your place.

 

All felting materials and light refreshments of tea, coffee & biscuits are provided as part of the courses alongside handout notes to help you continue to enjoy making your chosen felt projects in the future.
