Nuno felting is an adaptation of wet felting in which wool fibers are felted onto fabric. This technique was developed about 1992 in Australia. In this class, you will begin with a piece of silk approximately 11″ x 60″ and then “nuno felt” wool and silk fibers to it to create a light ethereal scarf. There will be shrinkage in the felting process. Your delicate new scarf, either tied or wrapped, will provide you many enjoyable wearings.

Instructor:

Liza felted her first woolen bowls while stranded in a hotel room during an ice storm using the bag from the ice bucket and the microwave in her room. Of course, she just happened to have a supply of wool roving with her. Doesn’t everyone? After years as a mom and teacher, she has recently returned to the fiber arts dabbling in knitting and weaving. In her Nebraska home, she is enjoying trying new techniques and media.
