Into to Nuno Felting with Justine Moody

Gallery North

Nov. 4, 2014, 12:00 am

90 North Country Road

Learn the basic techniques of Nuno felting. (“Nuno” is Japanese for “Fabric”) This felting technique was developed in the early 90′s and combines wool with a loose or open weave material in order to create a light weight fabric. Students will create a beautiful scarf out of hand dyed silk chiffon, a wall hanging or unique panel of fabric that can be sewn into a bag or pillow case etc. This class requires a little elbow grease, but the end result is worth the effort!

Skill level: advanced beginner

Local artisan, Justine Moody, has had a passion for working with fibers and clay since the day she discovered handcrafting. She is a fine art graduate from Pratt Institute and for over 10 years, owned a bright and bustling studio that nurtured the creativity of others by introducing them to two of her favorite mediums. Over the past few years however, Justine has focused her work on the grounding techniques of traditional wet felting using natural fibers and hand dyed fabrics. Justine’s current work consists of both non-functional three-dimensional pieces as well as an ethereal collection of nuno felted wearable art pieces and tapestries.
