Description

*Nuno scarf or wall-hanging. Barbara will teach you how to blend two materials to make a lovely scarf or wall hanging. By combining soft merino wool fibres and a fine scarf together you will create a unique piece of material. The wool will naturally shrink but the fabric will not, this will leave a lovely texture unique to the nuno technique. There are so many different outcomes in this technique that are difficult to explain in words and have to be seen. But look at the images for some idea of what can be achieved! I do know that the finished scarf will keep you cool in the warmer weather but toasty warm during the colder months too. They also look fabulous as wall-hangings of table runners as well. *Please enquire if you do not see a date to suit you. A fine synthetic scarf in a choice of colours and pattern is included in the price. You can chose the one you like best from the range available. . Each piece of work will be totally unique as you choose from Barbara's wide selection of coloured merino wool to suit the scarf you have chosen. The scarf colour will show once the wool is on the scarf and you can leave as much or as little of the scarf showing as you like. *Or bring your own scarf in a colour of your choice. It needs to be very fine, either silk, fine cotton or fine synthetic. Your scarf must be approx 20 inch x 70 inch due to table space and the time we have. * If you would like to purchase a very fine silk scarf instead of using a free synthetic scarf provided then I have a small selection of Silk scarves available, at an additional £12 each, a bargain as silk had tripled in price in the past few years. *You'll be able to see several examples, discussing various designs to suit the scarf and examples to inspire you before you start. Alternatively: If you would like to make a thicker woolly scarf then please discuss with Barbara beforehand. Please bring a packed lunch and two dark coloured bath towels for table protection.
