Nuno Summer School

Nuno felt scarfNuno feltNuno Felting workshopNuno felt workshop

Enjoy discovering the wonderful felted textures obtained by blending fibres onto fabrics.

In this three day workshop we will explore the potential of multi-coloured and textured nuno felt. With the addition of curly fleece, yarn and fabrics, we will cover the technique to trap fabric and threads with merino fleece onto a base material. Using various materials we will experiment by layering them onto cotton muslin to build up a design. Using your chosen image as starting point we will consider colour, tone, shape and composition to build a thoughtful piece of work. My aim is to help you to feel more confident with this technique by showing you how these techniques can enhance and extend your textile skills.

Day one - Nuno Cushion - This is a chance to really explore and experiment with a variety of materials and techniques. During this workshop you will discover how you can make the fleece attach to the fabric and make unusual textures using other materials too.    

Day two - Nuno scarf – spend time considering your colour, shape and compositon as you gain experience and control the nuno techniques.

Day three - You choose to make a scarf, cushion cover or wall hanging. This is an opportunity for you to make a more considered piece of work and you can really enjoy pushing the boundaries of nuno felting. Make a pre-felted piece and then stitch into it. Add tied beads and stones and then re-felt it, to produce a highly textured fabric.

Cost £130 for three sessions including materials, equipment and refreshments.

Date of next summer school to be cofirmed.
