Day One 
We had such fun on our last Nuno course, we wanted to do it again…

Nuno Felting with Sarah Enoch of Calonwlân Felt.
We will be making Nuno felted pieces of fabric.
Nuno felting is the process of fusing wool fibres with a loose weave fabric to create a totally new and highly textured fabric. During the process, the wool fibres move through the weave of the fabric and attach themselves to each other creating a permanent network of fibres. As the wool fibres shrink in the final part of the process they distort the weave creating an interesting texture.There will be an additional charge for felting wool and other materials (including vintage sari silk and hand dyed silk chiffon, usually under £10)  OR you are welcome to bring your own: this is a fabulous opportunity to up-cycle that old chiffon scarf or that old favourite (but now tatty) cheesecloth blouse you have still got hanging around in the back of your wardrobe.  A full list of what to bring will be sent out to you when you book.  
Please note: Felting does require moderate physical exertion and at times stamina and perseverance :-) 

Day Two 

Upcycled waste-coat with Carys-Hedd

We will be using the nuno felted piece in combination with a jumper or two – cutting and using upcycling techniques to create a delicious new waste-coat, without a pattern, on a mannequin. Bring your own jumpers to upcycle.  Loosely woven garments are more difficult to work with, so traditional jumpers are best to use, especially if you’ve never done this before!  Bring a variety of colours which will blend well together.

£100 for the weekend including lunch and refreshments.
Please book with 50% deposit as space is limited.
