Nuno Felted Scarves or Warm Woolly Scarves
 

What is Nuno? Well let me explain a little about it – By melding a loose fibre i.e.usually wool, into a sheer fabric such as a silk gauze or a very fine cloth , when felted the wool shrinks to leave a beautiful subtle texture on the silk that is created by no other technique, creating texture and drape which lends itself to beautiful movement required in a scarf.
Or you may like to make a lovely woolly scarf , the choice is completely yours!
I have a variety of scarves available to purchase from £7 -£12 but please feel free to bring your FINE scarf -silk or even a polyester (very fine) will work too.

Half Day 12.45 -3.30pm
Please email if you would like a full day and cover needle felting, bowls and a small picture £60.00

Some people just don’t like the feel of wet wool on their skin so this course is great for you.
 Christmas Themed – Make a cute robin, owl or Penguine decoration, a Christmas stocking and picture -yes in 1 day 🙂 
  You could either make a needle felted picture without all of that water, soap and rubbing and use barbed needles instead.
You just need to bring a picture with you for inspiration, the possibilities are endless 🙂
 
Half day –simple needle felted animal or picture. 
Full day-you will make an animal using a wire armature (legs & arm included 🙂
 

Or you may like to choose – Wet felted bowls & Pictures – State half day or full day when booking

Half day– small bowl & 5”x5” picture
Full day- you will make a larger bowl and a larger detailed picture due to the time that you have.
The three dimension bowls are delightful and look great to pop your little bits of jewelry in at your bed side, or beware,  husbands have been known to hijack them to drop their loose change into!
It never ceases to amaze me how felt fibres can be transformed into 3 dimensional objects, and without any sewing at all.
