Felt & Stitch – Nuno & Beyond

a workshop with Alison Gomes

In this 2 day workshop you will make and take home your own unique scarf.

You will be guided through the technique of nuno-felting (the art of adding fabric to wool before you felt it). You will learn all things related to making nuno-felt, such as how to choose your fabrics, different ways of combining wool and fabric, and plenty of tips on getting a great result. And it doesn’t end there…

In the next part of this workshop, we will enhance our nuno scarves by adding detail through hand-stitching (no embroidery experience necessary). Discover how you can take a piece of felt to another level, simply by stitching into it. See how different threads or yarns look when added to felt, and how the size, density and timing of stitching can all change the final look of your piece.

At the end of this workshop, you will have created a very special scarf in your chosen colour palette and design. What’s more, you can then apply these techniques to other felt creations in the future.

This workshop is suitable for all felting levels – although basic felting experience is required.

Materials fee of $12 payable to the tutor.

Materials on list are estimated at $40 – list will be emailed upon completion of your order.

About Alison

I am a fibre and textile artist living and working right here in Perth. My own felting journey began in 2007 when I first discovered the joy of creating hand-made felt. I was hooked! I still love the process and the magic of turning simple wool fibres into unique, beautiful pieces of felt. You can have a look at some of my work at www.nativeneedle.com.co
I have also had my work displayed in a few different exhibitions over the years.

It gives me great pleasure to pass on this love of felt by teaching the techniques I use. And to then see others inspired to make beautiful things of their own. Over the years I have taught several workshops for Feltwest, and I look forward to teaching this one too.
