Explore the ancient art of feltmaking with a modern twist. From the Japanese word for cloth, nuno-felt is a relatively new technique developed in 1992 by Australian feltmaker Polly Stirling, whereby a lighter weight felt is created by using lesser amounts of wool in combination with an open-weave fabric. You’ll purchase and bring your preferred color choices of wool and silk to class (Source list will be sent to you when you register.) and make a scarf that will be uniquely yours—highly textured, flexible and very beautiful. This is also a great class for those interested in learning how to make their own one-of-a-kind fabric.
