Workshop Description: In this workshop we will explore surface design to create texture and visual interest in nuno-felting. Nuno-felt (“nuno” is the Japanese word for cloth) is a relatively new technique in the world of felting developed by Australian feltmaker, Polly Stirling, in 1992, whereby a lighter weight felt is created by using lesser amounts of wool in combination with an open weave fabric. Come explore the ancient art of feltmaking with a modern twist. Your finished scarf will be highly textured, flexible, and very beautiful. This is also a great class for those interested in learning to make their own one-of-a-kind fabric yardage.

·        If you wish to incorporate printed silks or beaded silks, which add a beautiful touch, I oftentimes purchase printed silk chiffon dresses and skirts, as well as beaded silk garments, at thrift and second hand shops. Be on the lookout and pick those gems up as you see them and bring them along.

·        Embellishing fibers (optional, but add nice texture and sheen), such as beautifully dyed silk hankies, silk fibers, etc. Available at:

Do remember that you may have time to make more than one scarf depending upon the complexity of your piece so bring extra wool and silk fabric/scarf. Coordinating embellishing fibers (optional, but they add nice texture and sheen), such as: silk hankies, silk fibers, bamboo, viscose, linen fibers, etc.:

  • Several old bath size or beach towels.
  • Simple sewing kit to include scissors, needle and thread.
