Nuno-felted Cowl

Learn how to make a beautiful, light-weight, nuno-felted cowl perfect for spring and summer. I will explain how to lay out wool fibres in a single-layer, herring-bone pattern over a resist. Then we will felt the wool so that it binds to the silk chiffon base layer.

We will then shrink and finish the cowl so it fits you.

Class fee includes silk chiffon, wools and use of felting equipment.
