called Nuno felting. Experiment with felting directly into the body of various fabrics to create unusual

textures, rippling and ruching of the fabrics occurs naturally during this process. This is an inspiring day

full of colour and texture. Discover how to blend colours in wool together as well as the possibilities of

delicate lightweight lace felts. Seen them in the boutiques? Now make your very own!
