Nuno Scarf - Saturday 22nd September 2018
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.
All materials are included.
The workshop starts at 10am and ends at 4:30pm (participants are asked to arrive at 9:45am for a 10am start).
All levels welcome.
Refreshments of tea, coffee & biscuits available during the workshops. Please bring along a packed lunch, an apron & wear old clothes and comfortable shoes. A camera would also be useful to record your work stages.
