Skill Level: Advanced Workshop for experienced feltmakers.
Class Description: In this workshop Charity will offer instruction in how to make beautiful pleated felt dresses. This workshop is for making fashionable and creative dresses or skirts. The focus will be on designing and making a one-piece nuno-felted garment. Students will be working with a very simple, but effective pattern, which will help them develop their own fashion ideas. The emphasis will be on pleating, layering and adding godets to the design. We will be creating very floaty accents which give the garments a dreamy feeling. Students will be allowed to freely use their imagination in their designs. There are possibilities of inserting woven or knitted panels. This workshop is for making fashionable and creative dresses.
You will be making pieces of art and unique garments that come into full expression when worn. These will be days full of surprises.
