About this course
This A-line art vest is very versatile in that there are several design options. Makers will learn multiple techniques, while creating a beautiful piece of wearable art. You'll come away with an art vest, possibly reversible, of your own design.
Once you register, you will be mailed a kit of materials. You will also be asked what general colors you wish to work in, i.e. cool, warm or neutrals. You're welcome to use any natural materials not included in your kits, but only those in the kit are guaranteed to felt together. They include the materials you will need--luscious silks, fine merino wool, and a host of embellishments.
This vest is created flat, so it does require a large work surface. I use two 6' folding tables, side by side. Additional things you will need: a rolling kit (5'x 8' rubber rug mat & a pool noodle with three T-shirt strip or stocking ties); a piece of painters plastic drop cloth .47 mil that measures at least 5'x 8'; one gallon garden sprayer with soapy water, or a ball brasier in a bucket for wetting; a pair of sharp, full-sized scissors; a dress maker's measuring tape; at least two old towels you don't mind staining (you never know); finally, you'll need paper and pen for design planning
Course starts on January 23, you will receive email reminders after you register.
