From Felt to Fabric : New Techniques in Nuno Felting
Acclaimed fibre artist Catherine O'Leary introduces her distinctive, painterly approach to nuno felting with trademark techniques that make the craft easier to master, more creative and more personal. Her exciting innovation, nuno pre-felts, integrates commercially printed fabric into the process and then uses these patterned pieces as design elements to create artful wearables and accessories. O'Leary explores principles of art and composition, like shape, colour and texture and offers aspiring felt-makers inspirational projects plus a gallery of works illustrating the wide-ranging possibilities of her method.
