Extension Skills Program – Nuno Felt
07/04/2020 @ 10:00 am – 1:00 pm
Nuno is a technique that incorporates fabric as well as wool, generally creating a soft, draping fabric, however, it can be firm, very textural and tactile. Both results can be used in any creation to make a light flowing garment, or used to make embellishments such as cuffs or collars, or a highly textured sculptural piece. We will bring along a range of samples to inspire your creativity, and we will make two samples to learn techniques for these two types of nuno. After this session you will have the skills needed to tackle a larger project such as a nuno scarf or heavily textured collar.
All the felting equipment is supplied, and materials will be available for sale on the day (cost up to $5), so you just need to bring along your enthusiasm.
These classes are designed for inexperienced felters, or anyone wanting to refresh their skills or learn a new felting technique. They are ideal for people who have completed the Feltwest beginners workshop and are keen to learn more, or gain the skills and confidence required to undertake a more advanced felting workshop.
Extension classes are kept small to provide a lot of 1:1 support to participants in a relaxed and helpful environment. The sessions will focus on creating one or more samples on a specific technique.
