Introduction to Nuno Felting with Carin Engen.  (http://artfullyfelt.blogspot.com)

Cost for the workshop is $200 plus materials fee.

Explore the magical technique of Nuno felting. This will introduce you to the tools, materials and methods used to make this amazing process happen. It’s like painting with fibers. During the process the fibers actually migrate through the fabric. If you don’t cover the entire fabric with fiber a secondary pattern happens because the wool fibers shrink but the fabric doesn’t, creating lots of pucker.
