Hello Makers! West County Fiber Arts in Sebastopol will be hosting once again a felting class! I hope you can join me on this new journey. I will be teaching a Hat Making Class using a resist that will allow to create shapes, textures and to add your personal and special touch to your project. I will show how to design a hat from scratch. We will be starting by making our own pattern using our own measurements. It’s going to be a lot of fun!
You will be surprised at how many options there are when designing a hat. Lately, I’ve been immerse into hat making just because it is fun and to also have a few examples to show to my students for inspiration.
This is a hat that was ALMOST a failure! It was meant to be a rose, but instead it became something weird that started to look like a lump. Or perhaps a nipple?
I didn’t liked it at all! It looked somehow disturbing. So I decided to perform surgery with a pair of scissors.
This is much, much better. I’m thinking of adding some design elements with a sewing machine.
As I said… This can be a journey! If you are interested on taking my class, follow the link below for more information and registration.
