Nuno Felted Bag Workshop @ Rosehaven Yarn Shop
May 5 @ 9:00 am – 5:00 pm
Nuno Felted Bag Workshop with Chris Hall of Cake Tin Hat
Participants will learn to layout wool fibres and apply various weights of fabric to create the surface pattern design of their own bag. After selecting a style and colours we will design and create our own bag from the finest merino wool and silk fibres using a wet felting resist technique and seamless construction method. By the end of the day each participant will have completed a beautiful heirloom Nuno felted bag which they take home to dry and apply decorative stitching if desired.
Skills required: Some felting experience is required. Felting skills involve everything from delicate hand and finger dexterity to strong physical effort in the arm and shoulder area and requires and a lot of standing. Stamina is essential. Maximum 4 participants.
Materials supplied: Merino wool top, silk fibre, a selection of fabrics, template material, soap, bubble wrap, pool noodle, and other felting tools will be made available.
Students need to bring the following: Two old bath towels, two old hand towels, a bucket, sharp scissors, an apron or a change of top (not necessary but just in case of getting wet). You are also encouraged to bring along some of your own fabrics; silks, cottons, linens and scarves (vintage or otherwise) to help you to learn which fabric will felt with wool.

xThe workshop will focus on working creatively in exploring and concentrating on surface designing. We will explore the structures and rough surface using different techniques and materials to create a very beautiful wearable coat.
While focusing on designing and making a one-piece nuno-felted A-line coat.
Students will learn how to create and to add box pleats and extra float accent into the coats to create a princess line coat.
They will develop and enlarge their own pattern with a very simple, but effective method that will help them develop their own pattern that will suit and fit them.
In addition we will be creating textures on the surface to create a very creative coat.
Students will get to work with all kinds of fibers, fabrics and raw wool to create the textures to their own liking.
This is a great opportunity to learn how to create your new one piece long or short sleeved and fashionable spring coat.
Students will also learn how to enlarge a normal pattern into a felting pattern using my simple basic techniques I use in my work.
