Here is a class that happened a couple of weeks ago. This was a workshop in nuno feltmaking and some gorgeous scarves were made by all. For any of you who aren't felters - first of all, shame on you!! - Nuno, which means fabric in Japanese, refers to the fact that a fabric is integral to this type of felting. The fleece is laid on fabric and is felted until the two have combined to create the new "fabric". A glorious result!
As you can see these students have made some stunning pieces. I hope they will show them off for ages to come - believe me they looked better at first hand.
From left, Jo, Ro and Julia. They look so elegant and I really hope all the rolling will not put them off having another go soon!

Hope your weekend is full of fun
