Summer holiday workshop

These nuno scarves were created at our workshop today.

Some of our participants were first time felters, others have some experience of the felting process. All produced an excellent example of nuno felt, using either silk, cotton voile or polyester fabric.

Nuno felt is the term used to describe the process of hand felting merino wool ( or alpaca, as was the case today) and fabric to achieve a unique new textile.
