Are you a fiber person who loves color and texture? Did you ever wish you could create your own textile to sew with? Do you love Nuno garments, but don't like the way they fit? If you answered yes to these questions then you're going to want to join us for this two-day workshop! Nuno is made by wet felting wisps of unspun wool into a loose weave fabric (usually silk). Bring a pattern of your choice and we'll make your cloth come alive after calculating shrinkage to be sure you have enough to make a stunning one-of-a-kind garment. The resulting textile can also be used for quilting! Silks and wool will be supplied by instructor.
Material Cost: Varies
