FeltWEST is delighted to offer this workshop with international felt artist May Jacobsen Hvistendahl during what will be her third visit to Australia.

Workshop Description:

Make an elegant and unique nuno-felted top made of silk fabrics and fine merino wool. This workshop is all about personal design, and the wonders of fibre direction. Learn to customise a pattern for individual size and quality. Your garment will be light and elegant, well felted and full of drape. Make a sleeveless top, a blouse with short sleeves, or an open vest. Or make it a little longer and call it a mini dress. Anything is possible!

Previous nuno-felting experience is required.

We expect this workshop to fill very quickly.  Enrol now to secure your place. A cancellation policy applies.
