Join fiber artist Gika Rector for this introduction to the magical process of making nuno felt. It is an amazingly light fabric made by felting a bit of wool into a loosely woven natural fiber fabric. Perfect for our southern climate, nuno felt has exciting possibilities for creating custom fabrics. The underlying woven fabric adds strength and drape while the wool/felt adds texture, color and endless design possibilities. In this class, you can choose to either create a nuno-felted scarf or a square design that you can use as a pillow cover.
Materials: Bring a towel. Level: Beginner – no knitting involved!
