Nuno FeltingIn the month of July we have been very busy with brilliant, bountiful and beautiful Summer Schools...

Nuno Summer School with Carol Mowl

A wonderful time was had with the students truly enjoying the luxury of three days crafting in Nuno Felting. They all made good use of the studio facilities with much to inspire them, including my collection of hand-made textiles, which proved to be a good starting point to generate new ideas from.
