In this workshop, we’ll push the boundaries of the felt-hat-making process. You will learn techniques for designing and enlarging a 2-D pattern to obtain a certain 3-D shape. You’ll learn how to construct a complex “book resist” template, how to lay wool in a way that helps with shaping the hat; how to play with variable shrinkage, and how to build and attach extra parts that will affect the shrinkage and the final shape. There will be an emphasis on final shaping and finishing techniques. Materials fee: $35 equivalent of app. 14 oz fine dyed merino wool (19 mic) of your color choices. Half of the wool (7oz) can be one solid color batts (27 micron). Fee covers foam liner for the book resist. Level of student experience: wet felting experience requiredInstructor Bio: The award winner of several wearable art shows, Flóra Carlile-Kovács is a professional felt artist born in Szeged, Hungary, now living and working in Seattle WA. In her work she incorporates two bodies of knowledge, the nomadic traditions and the urban, modern style of feltmaking. Coming from the European tradition of craftsmanship and quality, she is constantly experimenting with ways to improve not only the visual artistic aspect of her work, but also its physical integrity as a functional object appropriate for everyday use.
