The technique of nuno felt involves the entangling or binding of wool fibers with a woven structure. This process involves heat and friction. The basic technique requires only water, soap and a pair of hands. Nuno Nouveau by Liz Clay teaches techniques which involve simple processes using household equipment. The skills required are not demanding and, with practice and creative planning, the student's only restriction is her own imagination.

Back Cover Information

In this timely new book, Liz Clay demonstrates how nuno felt can be used to create gorgeous scarves and throws, as well as home interior pieces, such as wallhangings

  • The nuno technique combines wool fibers with beautiful woven fabrics, such as chiffon, organza, cotton muslin and synthetics to produce a material that is lightweight and flexible.
  • The book includes information on adding embellishments and using shibori and cutwork.
  • Nuno Nouveau will enable every reader to develop a rich vocabulary of design ideas and methods to enhance their own projects.

About the Author

Liz Clay studied creative arts and textiles at Bath Spa University, where she developed a passion for felt work. Much of her inspiration is gained from plants and nature, as well as paper-making techniques. She works from her studio at home near Wells, in the south-west of England, using wool sourced from local farms. Her collection of boas, wraps and scarves is exhibited widely and available in selected shops in North America, Japan and Europe.
