NUNO FELTING DAY
Next course dates - 24th October 2019
Come and enjoy a day exploring the world of felting
Abandon the day to day, and get creative !
You will be working with the beautifully soft fibre from our friendly herd of alpacas. Alpaca makes a strong but soft felt and you will learn how to choose and prepare the fibre you are going to work with. Working with unprocessed fibre creates unique textures that pre processed fibres cannot give.
Learn the technique Nuno Felting to create your own unique alpaca & silk scarf. Nuno felting is a technique that allows you to fuse fibres into a loose weave fabric to create a new bonded material, in this case, alpaca and silk chiffon. All the materials and equipment you need to make your scarf are provided.
Kurt the Yurt
Enjoy working in our fondly named 'Kurt the Yurt', a traditional Mongolian yurt. Kurt is a good size but still quite cosy so we only take 2 - 3 students per course, however, this ensures that each student is guaranteed any help or guidance they may need.
Tea, coffee and herbal teas are available all day, with a delicious homemade lunch and afternoon cake to sustain and encourage your creative endeavours!
Organise Your Own Day
Dates for our Nuno Felting days can be found on our Diary Page but if you would like to organise a friends day out and suggest your own date, please do get in touch; I'm sure we can organise a day for you. Kurt can accommodate 2 - 3 students for a Nuno Felting day.
Meet the Alpacas
The alpacas are sure to stroll by at some point in search of snacks. Please feel free to bring apples or carrots with you!
