Fashion styling & Surface design for nuno-felted Garments.

June 7-10, 2018

 What to expect.

The workshops will focus on working creatively in exploring and concentrating on learning how to design your own unique and seamless felted coat. Students will explore the structures and rough surface using different techniques and materials.

The focus will be on designing and making a one-piece fashionable nuno felted garment.

Students will learn how to create pleats to add extra float accent into their projects.

In addition, we will be creating textures on the surface to create a very creative garment.

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 is a great opportunity to learn how to create your own fashionable and wearable piece and you will go home with a lot of new ideas.

Students will also learn how to enlarge a normal pattern into a felting pattern using the simple basic techniques I use in my work.

I will teach you how to enlarge a simple basic pattern into a felting pattern.

Very effective methods that will help you develop your own pattern that will suit and fit you.

But most importantly you will learn how to work with the direction of the wool that will help you in creating the form and shapes. This will help you understand how the direction of wool helps in garment felting and shaping. Because the wool plays a very important role in shaping the garments.

The procedure:

On the first day, we will look at styling and colors. Then make a miniature garment to help you in understanding the whole process. This is very important because you get to try out the colors and the style.

: Then we will draft the pattern and prepare for the days to follow.

: The following days we will concentrate on laying out the wool finely, wool laying is so important in the garment felting.

On the last day, we will be refining and shaping the final garment. And most importantly we will be doing the final fitting.

No sewing needed. Only for attaching elements to the design.

Basic felting experience required.
