PLEASE NOTE: This is a 3 Day Workshop; July 3, 4 + 5; 10 am – 4 pm
LOCATION: Credo High School; 1300 Valley House Dr. Suite 100
This 3-day workshop will focus on designing and making one-piece fashionable and wearable nuno felted garments; e.g. dresses or skirts.
Students will explore the various textures and rough surfaces using different techniques and materials.
You will learn how to add pleats to achieve extra float accents into your project.
Students will learn how to enlarge a normal pattern into a felting pattern using the simple basic techniques that Sharit uses in her work. This is a very effective method that will help them to develop your own pattern template that will be a custom fit for you.
Most importantly you will learn how to work with the direction of the wool to achieve a personalized style. The direction of the wool is very important to determine the shrinkage, the styling and the shaping of the felted finished garments.
All materials included.
Ages: 18+ Skill Requirements: Students will be working on their feet for extended periods of time, and using their body to felt the wool. Basic understanding of felting wool is highly recommended.
