Nuno felt is the art of incorporating fleece onto fabric, or fabric into fleece during the making of wool felt. The hooks in the fibre of wool fleece will attach to fabric as well as to each other. This workshop concentrates on laying fleece which is pivotal to the quality of felt fabric. Take home a nuno felt sample or two and the skills to continue felt making.

AT the INTRODUCTION TO nuno FELT MAKING WORKSHOP We will practise the laying of a “batt” twice through if time allows, laying a “pre-felt” to cut and use as decoration for our silk and cotton nuno felt samples. After we massage and roll our pieces, comes the process of fulling, and testing for finish.

Materials supplied include silk & cotton fabrics, wool fleece, silk and wool for decorative additions.

Bring along your lunch if you’d like to stay after the workshop and enjoy our beautiful back yard or verandah
