Featuring one-of-a-kind wearable works of art created by a unique process called Nuno felting. This technique, done by hand, bonds pure silk fabric with luxurious fibers to create brand new fabrics which are drapable, lightweight and sheer.

I gave a nuno felting demo at the fabulous Beach CITE Studios' open house last Saturday. "CITE" stands for "community interactive teaching experience" and the facility is dedicated to teaching the arts to the community. Here I am, laying out a scarf, "Cherry Blossoms." About 30 people came through and there were lots of questions. Nuno felting isn't a process that is easy to understand - it took me a while to really understand it, and this was after I had been doing it a few months. Wool fibers tangle with silk to create a new fabric.
