12 July 2014 10.00-16.30 Jacket
This class is oriented at a wide spectrum of students both practicing felting and those who are just discovering this wonderful craft. Lack of a previous experience in building patterns and producing felted garments is not an impediment: i will teach you both of these skills.
You will witness the A to Z of making a felted jacket or dress: from calculating the shrinkage ratio, building a pattern, to several fitting-to-shape techniques.
Together we'll build the template-resist and learn how the direction of wool layout affecting the final shape if the garment. You will also know how do different decorating materials behave in felting.
There is a lot to be covered, so the students are encouraged to participate in the creative process: the master will make the jacket with your help.
We'll start with some theory and quickly move to some fun felting. You can take pictures and ask all the questions you like, but please, don't do any video recording.
Can't wait to meet you at my show-class! I promise it will be fun. Cheers Irena.s
