Nuno Felting

On May 23rd  Anna Turnbull (Biteabout Arts) joined us to deliver a Nuno felting workshop. Many of us were keen to learn this technique of felting onto silk chiffon.

We all did a small test piece first to understand the technique, then we had the opportunity to make a scarf.

Danielle Ray decided to experiment with felting onto different fabric to see the effect and how well it worked. She tested plain cotton, cotton muslin, nylon chiffon, netting and voile, with varying results:
