Experimenting with Nuno Felting…..

Yesterday I was teaching in Risley, just outside of Derby, working with a creative group of ladies called “Material Girls”.  They had invited me over to spend the day with them experimenting with Nuno Felting.

The ladies all brought a selection of lightweight fabrics ranging from pure silk, viscose and muslin through to polyester and netting as well as Merino fibres.  The idea was for this to be an experimental session making samples which could later be stitched and framed, making a unique piece of textile art.

The results were absolutely stunning!  Depending on the choice of fabrics this process can be very time and labour intensive and therefore I was a little concerned as to the staying power of my group!  I needn’t have worried….there was a lot of coffee, biscuits, laughter and determination to keep us going and the results really paid off.

Once their work was finished the ladies used picture mounts to select certain area which appealed to them for stitching.  Non of this fabric will get wasted as even small off cuts can be used for making brooches or used in card making, mixed media work, etc…..

Once again, it was a pleasure to work with a group of like minded ladies and be able to share my enthusiasm and passion for Feltmaking and Textiles.  Many thanks to Viv and Jenny for arranging my visit and helping to make the day a success.  I look forward to seeing you all again sometime.

  1. Wonderful colours and textures. Nuno is not something I have explored greatly at all, I need to rectify this, very inspiring indeed. They all did a great job.
