You may be wondering what "Nuno" means. Great question...it means “fabric” in Japanese and is a term used to describe the felting of natural fibers (we will be using Merino wool top) and open weave fabrics (in our case, silk sari fabrics) to create your choice of either a beautiful, small table runner or two placemats. These unique, colorful nuno-felt pieces will resemble a lovely stained glass window through the collaging of silk fabrics. Your mosaic nuno-felt will be both decorative and functional offering protection to your table from spills. This is a great class, not only for feltmakers who want to add some new skills to their repertoire, but also for anyone interested in learning to make their own one-of-a-kind fabric yardage. Suitable for all levels. Some standing involved… please wear comfortable shoes and clothes. Skill Level for this Workshop: Suitable for all levels. Some standing involved.
