Nuno Scarf Workshop a great success!
Date posted: 18 July 2018
Textile artist Jo Hunter led a fantastic workshop on Saturday 14th July, producing fantastic, fashionable results.

On Saturday, in the beautiful setting of the Conservatory, our class of textile enthusiasts enjoyed a wonderful day creating a beautiful ‘nuno’ silk and wool scarf.  Led by Jo Hunter, participants learnt how to combine silk fabrics with soft merino wool to design and make their very own unique silk scarf. The results were quite beautiful!

Jo made sure everyone received her time and focus, to encourage the best results, with one particpant commenting that the class was "very enjoyable", as their "lovely tutor paid attention to everyone."
