Fashion a new Adirondack tradition! This project will introduce you to nuno felt, a fabulous contemporary felting technique incorporating fine wool fibers felted into a light base weave. During the felting process, shrinking of the wool fibers causes the silk fabric to ruche or gather up, creating a rich texture. Unlike traditional felt, nuno uses a minimal amount of wool fibers so it can be very light-weight and gossamer. You will felt a floaty nuno scarf using fine layers of merino wool, silk, and novelty fibers and a light woven silk base. Learn how to choose materials and create a surface design inspired by the beauty of the Adirondacks. This class is beginner friendly.
