Pam de Groot presents a workshop in which you will make prefelt yardage to create garments with twists, pocketing and swales, using minimal patterns.
You will exploit the amazing properties of felt for garment creation. This course challenges you, the maker, to trust the process of discovery and let your creativity run free. Be ready for thrills and delights on this rollercoaster ride! Some felting experience is essential.

Join the fabulous Anita Larkin to look at the intricate and beautiful shapes to be found within natural objects.
A shell, a seedpod, or an image of a microscopic life form, can all be infinitely inspiring when you are make felted sculptural forms. Students are asked to bring as inspiration a shape that is found in nature. Anita will discuss approaches with you and help you learn various strategies for making those shapes in felt. Among the skills learned would be how to work with many resists at once, inserting resist pockets in the body of a felt, using thick pre-felts, felting around wire, and felting without resists by modeling directly in the hand.
Be inspired by the possibilities of shapes able to be made in felt.
