Nuno Felting allows you to make luxurious fabrics of extraordinary lightness and warmth. We will focus on how to draft wool in a variety of ways, how to create ruffles, ruching and crushing, how to roll, knead and slush shrink your felt and how to design a simple vest. This class is excellent for a beginner as an introduction to felting and also for the experienced felter who wants to learn more details about making good felt.
