Nuno with Vivienne Morpeth…..

The weather in Lincolnshire has been dull, wet and miserable but I’ve had a fantastic day felting in Barton on Humber at the studio of IFA tutor Vivienne Morpeth.  Vivienne creates wonderful Nuno felted wearable art which I saw for the first time back in April and I knew I had to have a workshop with her.

A small sample of Vivienne’s work on display in her studio

Vivienne’s studio is very light and airy and she made me feel very welcome.  I learnt a lot from today as she is incredibly generous when it comes to sharing her knowledge, built up from her many years experience of felt making.

Laying out the silk

I chose to work with a neutral palette (no surprise there) creating a wrap using  very fine Merino tops, Uzbekistan Silk and Habotai.

Adding the pebbles

Making this wrap really helped me to appreciate how much work goes into one of Vivienne’s Nuno dresses and, having done it, I’m even more keen now to make a dress!  I’m sure this workshop will go down a storm with my group at Belchford!

Vivienne and my almost finished wrap

I’ve brought it home to finish off…..just need to tidy up the edges so will post photos of the finished item once it’s dry.  Thanks for a fantastic day Vivienne and look forward to hosting you in Belchford sometime soon.
