Felting Workshops

Make a stylish Nuno felted wrap that will take an outfit from everyday to glamorous at Cobb+Co Museum’s felting workshop.

Produced originally by Asian nomadic tribes, felting involves taking a raw fibre of wool and turning it into a piece of fabric by agitation and water.  It is believed felt was originally discovered when the nomads put wool in their sandals for comfort and after walking a long distance, it had matted to become felt.

Nuno felting is a specific technique that fuses merino wool into silk, making it particularly suitable for creating lightweight fabrics for clothing.

You will choose the design of your wrap, under the guidance of your tutor, and use the finest merino wool and pure silk fabric to create it.

This workshop is suitable for beginners and advanced students.
