Pam de Groot: Nuno Felting 18-19 May @ The Studio

Pam de Groot: Nuno Felting 18-19 May @ The Studio

Nuno felting is the integration of fabric and wool. Each of these have  their own unique properties and together they can make the most beautiful medium to create scarves, wraps and garments.

In this 2 day class we will experiment with some of the variety of techniques available to create surface design and ultimately create a beautiful scarf.

From a background of Studio Ceramics Pam has worked now in the field of Textile Art for 16 years. Primarily a felt maker she explores, through innovation, the many ways wool can be formed and coaxed into new and interesting forms. Pam is also a natural dye and printmaker, using her home of the Blue Mountains as a constant source of inspiration and colour. Organic forms and texture are a common theme throughout her work, with the various properties of wool and the colours of nature influencing each piece.
