Skill Extension – Fine laying for Nuno Wearables

Skill Extension – Fine laying for Nuno Wearables
Explore the options for creating fine drapeable wearables using fine laying techniques. The main reason wearables have no flow or lightness is due to too much wool. But don’t I need those 2 thick layers? The simple answer is No! Come along and learn how it is done.

Skill Extension – Craters

Felted craters can be so much fun, they can be hollow, or erupting with felt or other textiles and give a fabulous deep and earthy texture to felt wall hangings or sculptures. Join us to make a felt sample with a variety of filled and hollow craters. This workshop will give participants the skills to make a larger piece using these new techniques.
