NEW Felted Vest - TWO DAYS June 14 & June 15, 2019


Instructor: Chris Liszak

TWO DAYS, Friday June 14 & Saturday, June 15 - 10am to 5pm, room for 4 students maximum. For INTERMEDIATE LEVEL students. Some wet felting experience recommended. There will be approximately 1 to 1.5 hours to break for lunch each day.

There have been many requests for workshops creating vests and other wearables beyond scarves or hats, and this is our first one! This vest is Nuno-style, working on top of light silk chiffon fabric.

Day 1: in the morning: you will discuss design, choose materials and calculate and cut a custom resist. In the afternoon, design layout and work all surfaces, wet and start rolling.

Day 2: in the morning: finish felting and shaping. The afternoon you can custom tailor, or embellish (a sewing machine will be available to use). For those quick felters, the afternoon could be used to create a matching scarf or other small project.

A very creative and busy two days!

Tools and equipment are provided. Materials additional: approximately $50 to $100, available at the store. Participants are welcome to bring their own stash of feltable fibres from home. If you bring your own fabric, be sure it is true silk (we recommend doing the "burn test" if you're not certain) and that the weave is light enough you can see your hand through it.

Chris has more photos posted on her Facebook page to provide inspiration!

NOTE: no refund for cancellations within two weeks of the workshop.
