Newsletter with lots of new news!! Yay!
My friends and collectors modeling some of my newest nuno felt wearables at the May TACA fair in Centennial Park, Nashville, Tennessee.
The word “nuno” is japanese for “fabric”. “Nuno” felting, or laminate felting, is a wet felting technique where unfelted or partially felted animal fibers or wool are felted in contact with an open-weave fabric so that the ends of the fibers work through the openings in the fabric weave during felting.
