May 27th, 9:30am - 3:30pm
Instructor: Martha Lumia
You will be guided through the transformation of silk and wool into interesting and fabulous fabric. Nuno felting does not involve sewing, weaving, or knitting, but is created by the hand agitation of wool fibers into fabric, typically silk, resulting in a beautifully textured, lightweight, drapeable piece of wearable art. It’s magic!
