Nuno Felted Scarf
Felt Scarf Making Day
Nuno felting is my favourite felting technique which creates such beautiful qualities created by no other form of manipulation.
You have the option to either make a Nuno Felted Scarf or a Warm Woolly Scarf – and yes you can change your mind on the day if you wish!
The word ‘Nuno’ is Japanese for cloth. It is a wet felting technique that merges loose woollen fibres with a sheer fabric such as silk gauze or a very fine cloth. When felted the wool shrinks during the felting process and leaves a beautiful subtle texture on the silk unlike any other technique. This texture and drape lends itself to the beautiful movement required in a scarf.
Nuno scarf making requires a fine silk or natural base fabric, although a fine synthetic will crinkle with a lot more rubbing. I have a variety of fine silk scarves available to purchase on the day for £12 but please feel free to bring your own FINE scarf -silk or a very fine natural fibre scarf will work too.
The warm woolly scarf does not require a base layer.
Felt scarf making courses run from 10:00 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. (please arrive by 9:45 a.m. so we can start promptly).
Cost per course is £65 and includes all materials (apart from the silk scarf if you are making a Nuno felted scarf – I have a selection of beautiful fine silk scarves that you may like to purchase- only £10. or please bring your own.
A lovely home made light lunch,cake and other refreshments are included.
