Workshop Calendar

tr>

USA: Whidbey Island, Washington 2012:TWO CLASSES scheduled: July 17 - 21 and July 23 - 27

Felt Clothing: Contemporary Sculptural Structures
Seamless felt making produces sculptural effects which drape unlike conventional stitched forms meant to echo the exact shape of the body. How to produce a garment for your shape and design needs will be our focus, although direct fabric-making for garments of stitched construction is another acceptable approach. This will be a five day intensive covering exciting techniques with the target of producing light to medium weight, durable clothing. Beginning with a warm-up sampling of some interesting possibilities participants will move at their own pace to independent sampling and projects. Ideally, students should familiarize themselves with the text Fabulous Felted Scarves (J.Johnson/C.Hagen, Lark Books) and have some felt making experience before the workshop.

Germany: Oberrot-Neuhausen 2012: August 14 - 18

Mosaic Gypsy Shawls: Overtones, Striking Chords
Wool coordinates beautifully with many lightweight fabrics but coordinating color maybe lacking. We will commence by over-dyeing materials to create a palette of personal color using hot and cold water dyes. Participants are urged to bring cotton, rayon, and silks they love. Creating luxurious shawls and body wraps in harmonious color ranges through techniques of dyeing and felt making will be our goal. Personal design ideas will be encouraged. Course language: English
In diesem Kurs werden Sie in die Farbwelt aus Japan mit ihren einzigartigen Farbtonen- und schattierungen eintauchen. Sie werden Stoffe, Fasern oder im Kurs angefertigte Filze farben und uberfarben, um den Reichtum von unterschiedlichen und gleichartig intensiven Farben aus einem Farbebad zu erfahren. Durch das Uberfarben und Abbinden entstehen mosaikartige Stoffe beziehungsweise Filze, aus denen Schals und Stolas enstehen werden.

The Netherlands: Oldeberkoop 2011: August 2 - 4

Surface Development: Refined & Funky Berets: The difference between a brimmed hat and a beret is like the main course and dessert. The quality of fabric, shape and drape that a beret requires merits special attention. We will design a series of berets, some of which can be subsequently over-dyed to enhance or erase design motif. Consider dip-dye, over-dyeing of design, shaped-dyeing with simple and effective, traditional Japanese tie and dye techniques, as well as color and fiber blending, open cut work, inlay and lamination possibilities as part of the general design process.
Thin, well felted, nicely shaped, unique head toppers will be our goal. Students with some experience in either field will find possibilities to refine their skills from the lessons and visual presentations provided.

Expect to complete a uniquely personal wrapping cloth or pouch for which a special item or function is fulfilled.

How Color Plays in Feltmaking: This class is based on a series of short group and personal samplings digging deeper under the surface to expose the capabilities of the medium. The depth and breadth of color, including black and white, samples various techniques for expression and control in the medium.
