The Jaffrey Civic Center is pleased to announce the exhibit of Nuno Felting by
Melinda LaBarge in the first floor Display Cases beginning Friday, September 25
and running through Thursday, October 22.
Melinda has been running her own business as a fiber artist for five years and has been a juried member of The League of NH Craftsmen since 2012. She specializes in the Nuno Felt technique which is a wet felt process that merges silk fabric of wool roving creating one piece of fabric. About 8 years ago she saw a piece of Nuno Felt and immediately knew she wanted to learn the technique. After taking a few classes she was inspired to see what could be done with this relatively new medium. The Nuno Felt technique is less than 20 years old. Melinda hand dyes the majority of the materials and loves to treasure hunt for print silk in thrift stores, eBay and her friend’s closets. Her pieces are light, elegant, soft and durable. Currently she makes scarves, shawls, vests and coats. Melinda hopes you enjoy wearing her work as much as she loves making them.
The Jaffrey Civic Center is located at 40 Main Street, Jaffrey, New Hampshire, next to Library,
parking in rear. Hours are Tues: 10-6, Wed-Fri 1-5, Sat 10-2. Admission is always free.
