A fabulous opportunity to advance you felting knowledge by learning how to make sumptuously textured surfaces. 


During the day you will learn how to fuse the traditional technique of wet felting with the contemporary nuno process. By combining wool fibres with a selection of fabrics, we will explore how different fabrics and the way they are laid out, interact with wool to felt creating a myriad of patterns and textures.


We will make a series of samples pieces for your to take away for use as reference to aid your feltmaking, helping you plan and design beautiful nuno fabrics for future project. 


During the day you will select the colour(s) and fabrics you wish to work with to

  •  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 samplers using fabrics such as silk chiffon, habotai, linen, cotton, devore and more.


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. Please bring along a packed lunch.


Workshops runs from 10:00- 4.30pm with a break for lunch.

A most enjoyable day! Emma’s studio was warm and welcoming and was a lovely space in which to work. Emma was an excellent tutor, explaining each stage of the feltmaking process clearly and answering any questions that arose along the way. She provided a fantastic array of materials and taught us techniques for using them to best advantage .
