About this course
Using pattern resists in felt making is how we bring a flat design into three dimensional form. You will learn methods used to create any shape hat, clothing, vessels, and other 3-D techniques. Participants will learn about open, closed and layered resists, while creating five mini projects. We will make a small vessel, a tiny dress, felt feathers, volcanos and more. There will be a discussion on basic pattern making for any felted project, including a simple way to calculate for shrinkage.
When you register for this class, you will automatically be shipped materials including five mini kits, one for each lesson or project. There are a few things you'll need to gather for this class, here is the equipment list:
*A table or counter top surface that is at least six feet long. If using a table, consider table risers to save your back. They come in a set of four for around $10 (called bed risers).
*Bubble wrap 12" x 90," and one extra piece for rubbing
*piece of nylon sheer or tulle , approx 15” by 15”
*Piece of pool noodle at least 12" wide (or the width of your bubble wrap)
