Nuno vases

Nuno vases is the workshop I’m teaching on Thursday and I’m really hoping for more of this good weather so we can do at least some of the work in the garden. Here’s one I made earlier beginning with the laying out of 2 layers of turquoise wool onto a resist.

Then adding some carded wool, strips of silk, wool nepps and throwsters silk waste (my favourite silk).

A bit of rubbing later and look what I’ve got. I’m going to call it Waves. It’s worked out better than expected. The silk is ruffled which was my intention although a little more ruffled than I’d like in places but I might just add a little stitch anyway. What do you think?
