Friday 25th June 2021 Introduction to Nuno Felting for Scarves, Shawls, Wraps and more (Beginners/intermediates))
Get started with nuno felting which can be used for scarves, shawls, wraps, bags and decoration of felt work and art in a relaxed, friendly and supportive Workshop.
Learn to use different kinds of felting wools and fibres to create colour and texture on a fine material base which is wet felted to create a flowing material to use as a scarf, shawl or wrap and which can also be cut and sewn into bags or embellished as felt art.
We will be concentrating on starting with the basics of nuno felting, including:
What equipment and supplies do you need
Which fibres are suitable for suitable for nuno felting (wool types and also plant based fibres)
Which kinds of materials are best to use for the base
Choosing your fibres and colours
Laying out your design or pattern
Techniques for adding embellishments
The stages of wet felting
How to wet felt your nuno felt design
Finishing your nuno felt
Suppliers of felt making equipment and consumables (UK)
During this workshop, you will find out about the different kinds of felting wools and fibres can be used to great effect in creating colour, texture and embellishments.
We will then all be creating a unique piece of nuno felt, which is created using a wet felting method.
You will be able to complete your piece of nuno felt as a finished scarf, shawl or wrap. Alternatively you can take your piece of nuno felt away with you with some ideas of what you can make it into once it is fully dried, such as bags, felt art and more.
Included is your tuition, felting fibres and backing fabric, a selection of inclusions such as other fibres which can be incorporated with the felting fibres, as well as use of tools and equipment to complete your piece of nuno felt.
Hot and cold drinks will be provided throughout the day. Please bring your own lunch, snacks and drinks or a travel cup (or similar).
