Workshop: Nuno Felting

Date and time

Nuno felt Saturday, March 14, 2015
2–5 p.m.

Description

Join artist Gika Rector for this introduction to the magical process of making nuno felt. It is an amazingly light fabric made by felting a bit of wool into a loosely woven natural fiber fabric. Perfect for our southern climate, nuno felt has exciting possibilities for creating custom fabrics. The underlying woven fabric adds strength and drapability while the wool/felt adds texture, color, and endless design possibilities.

Materials: This felting technique uses water, so please bring a towel.

Level: Beginner—no knitting involved!
