We are privileged to have artist Oksana Danziger with us again, this time to introduce program participants to Nuno Felting! Nuno Felting is a fabric felting technique developed by Polly Stirling, a fiber artist from New South Wales, Australia, around 1992. The name “Nuno” is derived from Japanese (布) and means cloth.
This mixed media art combines wool with other fibers such as silk, to create lightweight but sturdy fabrics that are especially good for fashion. In this workshop we will make purses, cell phone or eyeglass cases and learn the basic principles of Nuno Felting which can then be applied new creative designs.
Nuno Felt is like a silk gauze that is gaining popularity amongst felters and often used for light summer dresses, shawls, scarves, skirts, shorts, book bags, pencil cases, etc. Almost any material can be used as long as it is thin enough. Come learn how to recycle fabric materials and manifest ideas for future creations. No previous skill necessary. Socialization throughout.
