Nuno Felt Wearables with Sharit
Sharit is a fashion designer specializing in wearable art using felted wool. In three days, students will create a sample and then a pattern and finally finished garments to fit their body. Participants can felt a coat or a long sleeve dress. Enjoy hands on learning in a small group setting. Explore textures and shapes to suit your taste. Charity will work with each student to achieve the design of their choice. You can create a felted garment modeling one of her styles or bring your own ideas for guidance in creating a truly one of a kind work of wearable art.
