On the 25th February 2024, Ana Rita de Albuquerque will come to Saber Fazer to deliver a special course on Nuno Felting! 

Nuno felting (Japanese for "cloth" or "fabric") is a wet felting technique that involves combining fabrics with wool (or another animal fibre), creating hybrid textiles. It's a fusion of techniques, materials and textures, during which we guide the migration process of the wool fibres through delicate cotton, silk or linen structures. In this very rich dialogue between the solidity of felt and the ethereality of light weaves, we explore forms, expressions and aesthetics that bring even more plasticity to a raw material that is already as eloquent as wool. 

This process has an alchemical quality in the fusion between materials that gradually transform and mutate under the hands that know, until they become something inherently unique.
This course includes all the necessary material.

Course content:
- Introduction to Nuno felting and its origins
- Understanding the concept of fusing wool fibres with a woven base
- Identifying the different types of wool fibres suitable for Nuno felting
- Introduction to various fabrics that work well as a base material. How to choose?

- Basic concepts of colour theory and how it applies to Nuno felting
- Creative considerations for building patterns and textures into the final piece
- Identifying common problems and challenges in Nuno felting
- Solving problems during the felting process
- How to preserve the integrity and longevity of the finished piece
