This opened the door for a craft industry which has created exciting textural and colour effects which, in turn has sent ripples through the fashion industry.
Under the umbrella of the Tilligerry Art Gallery (TAG), Denise Hill is running a series of workshops for a nuno felting self help group in Tanilba’s old Progress Hall in Peace Parade.
These workshops are just one of a series of creative classes run by TAG from its home base at the old fire station in Lemon Tree Passage.
They include watercolour and acrylic painting, quilting and children’s art, as well as craft workshops during school holidays.
Denise said that nuno felting derived its name from a Japanese word meaning cloth.
“We use silk as a base material with woollen yarn bonded into it,” she said.
“Scarves, handbags and wearables are the end products,” Ms Hill said.
