Description:

"Nuno" (which means “fabric” in Japanese) is a term now used to describe the felting of natural fibers (we’ll be using Merino wool) into a sheer woven fabric base (in our case, silk) to create a unique, light-weight fabric. Dawn will share with you a fun resist technique which creates a wave-like design element in your one of a kind scarf. Come explore the ancient art of felt-making with a modern twist. Your finished piece will be highly textured, flexible, and very beautiful.
