    Interesting techniques!

    From Felt to Fabric is written by Catherine O¿Leary, a talented artist from Australia. I was new to this technique of nuno felting which is basically accomplished by felting wool fiber through woven cloth. From Felt to Fabric tells how to make wool and nuno prefelts which can then be used alone or with other fabrics. The author uses this technique to make creative and unique clothing, art, and accessories and the resultant pieces are made largely of organic shapes and textures. She also takes artistic principles like light, shade, color and more to weave together unique pieces of nuno felting into something unique and special.
