Craftworks: Introduction to Nuno Felting

90 North Country Road
Setauket, New York 11733

Learn the basic techniques of Nuno felting. (“Nuno” is Japanese for “Fabric”) This felting technique was developed in the early 90′s and combines wool with a loose or open weave material in order to create a light weight fabric. Students will create a beautiful scarf out of hand dyed silk chiffon, a wall hanging or unique panel of fabric that can be sewn into a bag or pillow case etc. This class requires a little elbow grease, but the end result is worth the effort! Students are required to bring 2 towels and a bamboo mat or place mat that can be rolled.

Local artisan Justine Moody is a fine art graduate from Pratt Institute. She is a fiber artist, a potter, and a painter who finds inspiration in nature, age old craft techniques, and the symbology of Native American folk art. Her work ranges from non-functional three-dimensional pieces out of wool and silk, felted twists on everyday usable items, and bohemian inspired wearable art pieces and tapestries. She teaches a variety of craft felting and clay workshops throughout Eastern Long Island.
