Class Description: During 2 days of the workshop Kate will be showing how to achieve perfect thin and rounded felt lace work. We will be making some samples of lace work, progressing to recreate felt cuffs, and silk and lace scarf. At the end of the first day we will be laying out the lace vest with sleeves. The next whole day will be dedicated to dyeing, lace cutting and fulling the piece. You will learn a range of techniques that Kate use to make felt more elegant and wearable.
Kate will be using sanding machines to present the most efficient techniques of felt-making. The items will be made in white wool and silk fabric and then they will be subsequently dyed using a range of wool and silk dyes. Kate will show a very simple but effective dyeing techniques that she uses herself in her busy feltmaking studio in Ireland. You will learn how to make a quality felt with focus on simplicity of design process and finish of the product.
Skill level required: basic felting skills, also an understanding of how to lay out and handle the wool and how to handle dyeing. Kate will be using sanding machines throughout the course.
