During this three-day workshop, students will design and create “Nuno” felt yardage to be used to construct their own tailored vest or jacket. Flat felled seams will be used to close the front, back and sleeves into a functional unit, allowing the vest or jacket to have a lovely drape. accentuating each student’s individual silhouette.
Designs for the base fabric can be simple, elegant traditional fused silk with wool, 3-dimensional “Nuno”, or collage elements for each garment. The concept is to make a vest or jacket with a self-lining layer, of silk. The design possibilities are endless!!!!! There will also be an option to make two-in-one reversible yardage for the vest or jacket.
Two patterns will be available for purchase: Diane Ericson’s Fault Lines Vest and the Sewing Workshop’s Plaza Jacket. The Fault Lines Vest will be hand-stitched in the workshop. The Plaza Jacket will be machine stitched. Advanced felt experience is helpful, with intermediate sewing skills necessary. The patterns we will be using are NOT an all in one felt piece.
Workshop Fee: $395
