Elevating Style Sustainably: The Art of Up-cycling with Nuno Felt


In the world of fashion and creativity, the possibilities are boundless. Imagine transforming old garments from charity shops into stunning felted creations, breathing new life into forgotten textiles. This blog delves into the realm of upcycling, exploring the magic of felt-making and the versatile use of different fabrics in the process.



Unlocking the World of Nuno Felt with "Kaleidoscopic Nuno Felted Elegance"



When we talk about Nuno felt, we usually think of using natural fabrics like pure silk and fine cotton. But have you ever wondered what happens when we try working with synthetic fabrics or thicker cotton?


Sure, it might seem tricky at first to make synthetic fabrics felt, but trust me, they bring something special to the table—amazing texture. You just need to know the right way to do it, the techniques and tools that make it work. And that's exactly what I share in our online joint project with Diana Nagorna, Fashion Upcycled in Felting.


Venture into the world of diverse fabrics with this project, offering you the opportunity to experiment with as many materials as you have at your disposal. If a particular fabric proves challenging to felt, worry not. The unique petal design allows for easy removal and replacement of fabrics which did not felt, empowering you to adapt and create seamlessly. Discover the joy of exploration, where even challenges become stepping stones toward artistic expression.





In "Kaleidoscopic Nuno Felted Elegance," I spill the beans on how to work with all kinds of fabrics. I'll show you that even challenging materials like synthetic fabrics can be turned into something beautiful. By the end of the class, you'll not only be a Nuno felt pro but also feel confident to experiment with different fabrics, making your creations truly unique.
