MASTERCLASS for FELT COUTURE for Nuno garments.
This workshop will be focused on designing and making one-piece fashionable and wearable nuno felted garments. eg waist coats or wrap skirts.
Students will explore various textures and rough surfaces using different techniques and materials. They will learn how to enlarge a normal pattern into a felting pattern using the simple basic techniques I use in my work. These very effective methods will help students develop their own pattern template that will suit and fit you personally.
Even more students will go home with a many new ideas. Most importantly, they will learn how to work with the direction of the wool to achieve personalized style. The direction of the wool is very important in determining the shrinkage, styling and shaping of the felted finished garments.
