Unlike conventional weaving, we don't teach how to make a uniform fabric like a machine-made. We always try to do what only human beings can do. Let your creative mind find your true self by using yarns from over 500 colorful and natural materials. In a two hour session, you can complete a tapestry-size woven piece to take home!

Nuno Felting Scarf

Nuno felting is a technique which creates beautiful layered textiles of fabric and natural fibers, inspired by ancient felting processes.

The process of wet felting is a physically laborious process, but we will guide you through to a wonderful result with an adapted technique and as little physical strain as possible. Like a group workout, it's fun to do together. We believe that the end result is beautiful because of the love and the effort put into the cloth's creation. Improvised colors and textures made by nature make us happy. Let's make together with other fiber lovers!

Note

  • Bring an apron and rubber sole indoor/outdoor shoes.
