The May 1st class will teach how to NUNO felt.
Nuno is a technic that incorporates fabric as well as wool generally creating a softer draping fabric. However it can be firm, very textural and tactile.
Both results can be used to make the entire garment or used as embellishments such as cuffs, collars, sleeves, panels, a matching broach or as trim (etc) in a creation or to make a complete garment.
