“I never knew feltwork could be so fine and summer weight until I learnt about Nuno”
In DF5 | Nuno, we use three different techniques and include lots of practical information. Learn how to select suitable Nuno felting fabrics, make an effective soapy solution, calculate shrinkage, ‘repair’ non felting areas, and work with a prefelt recipe. With these techniques, you can then create beautiful abstract and drapeable Nuno felt.
About the course
Learning through sampling, DF5 | Nuno is all about combining fabrics with wool fibres to create a fine, drapeable fabric and using the shrinkage properties of the wool fibres too. You get the chance to explore a variety of methods to create different patterns, textures and designs.
The workshop is delivered step by step on screen and as a downloadable or printable pdf through Ruzuku. Work at your own pace and use the online group forum to ask the course mentor any questions you may have. If other students are doing the course, we encourage you to join in with peer feedback and discussions.
How much time will I need? We are often asked how much time is needed to complete this course. This is very dependent on how fast you work and how deeply you explore the course. We would suggest approximately 20 hours are required to complete the initial exploration. If you want to complete the 3 steps to the IFA Excellence in Feltmaking Award, it is likely to take you more time and practice to achieve your best results.
The course runs three times a year with a period of access to the online material. The three slots are January/February, May/June and October/November.
