Claudia Manokian: i am a textile designer and a felt maker\ artist, known for my modern approach to the medium of felt making by handcraft.
in 1993 while in England, i first met the old and rich textile art called felting, many things attracted me to the art of felting, the fascinating ancient history going back to 2300BC, the wonderful uncomplicated process of the work itself (wool, water, soap and a shaking motion)and the possibility to apply this art to the modern aesthetic approach of our days.
i adopted the texnique called NUNO-FELT, by manipulating a minimal amount of wool fibers through a basis of fine woven cloth, i create felted cloth with very different qualities to the more known tradisional felt.
