Second Quarter Challenge: Nuno Felt

This quarters challenge is about nuno felt.  If you have never tried it, try it.  Pick an open weave fine fabric and have ago. If you have tried it before put it on something you have never put it on before. If you make nuno scarves all the time try putting some fabric on a hat or pot or bag.

If that’s old hat they try some different fabrics, silk, cotton, linen, hemp, or synthetic.

If that’s not enough of a challenge try some fabrics you don’t think will work. Maybe thicker silk or cotton, maybe some lace or a woven plastic.

    I’ve done a lot of nuno felting, but not recently, so this is a timely reminder that I should have another go.
