June 1-3 2018 10-4

The workshop will focus on working creatively and concentrating on designing a one-piece nuno felted flared dress. We will also explore the structures and rough surface using different techniques and materials.
Students will learn how to create pleats to add extra float accent into their projects.
They will develop and enlarge their own pattern with a very simple, but effective method that will help them develop their own pattern that will suit and fit them.
In addition we will be creating textures on the surface to create a very creative but unfussy style. They will get to work with all kinds of fibers (linen, soya, silk fibers) and raw wool to create the textures to their own liking this will open a new world of possibilities it is a great opportunity to learn how to create your fashionable and wearable dress using my techniques I use in my collection.
Students will also learn how to enlarge a normal pattern into a felting pattern using my simple basic techniques I use in my work.
No sewing needed.
Basic felting experience required.
