Nuno and Cobweb Felt Scarves Tutor: Sue PearlCourse Code: 2420-03
Learn to make beautiful, light cobweb felt and nuno felt scarves. Cobweb feltmaking produces a lovely delicate, lacy fabric that can be used to make scarves and wraps. In nuno feltmaking wool is worked onto a lightweight natural fabric. The fibres of the wool migrate through the fabric so that the two become interwoven, creating fascinating textures and beautiful colours. Adding highlights of silk fibre, lace or fabric takes this into a whole new dimension.
On this course you will learn:
How to make beautiful felt fabric
How to lay down fibres in preparation for the feting process
Mixing colours and fibres
The method for making nuno and cobweb felt items
Combining other fibres and fabrics into cobweb felt
Completing a lovely scarf in cobweb or nuno felt.
These methods can take you to the next level such as construcing clothing using nuno felt method.
