There are three big garment projects, printable patterns, a great amount of information, and advanced garment-felting techniques!
This course is for experienced felters that already made some simple garments before.
The Hooded Vest project is an excellent warm-up for the two following elaborate garments of the course. You will learn a fun and alternative way to make vests (or capes and ponchos if you wish) with hoods of any desirable shape! The focus of this project is on the hood, armholes, and edges.
The Boucle Jacket is a close-fitting but comfy garment with a small collar and attached sleeves. You will learn the particular nuances of sleeve attachment during the felting process. The pattern is for a hip-length garment, a flattering length that would not cover the bottom. This pattern is drafted considering the layout technique that allows silhouette adjustments if required.
The third project is a roomy, cozy garment with a large, soft collar and kimono sleeves.
This project focuses on large and functional inset pockets that will not stretch out the fronts or protrude awkwardly. These pockets look pretty and professionally done.
All the patterns are included (printable) and come in sizes XS to XXL and in two different SRs (for more experienced or less experienced felters).
Every week, the participants will receive a new online package of learning material: an introduction, the whys and how-tos, step-by-step instructions with excellent quality photographs, and video tutorials. You can post your work in progress in the virtual class discussion room and communicate with other students. I will answer your questions in the chat weekly as soon as possible (not in real-time mode).
NEW! Once a week, I will be running a two-hour-long Zoom video session. We will discuss the time convenient to most of the class participants and schedule our Zoom sessions at the beginning of the course. The video chats will be recorded and available to those unable to attend in time.
The course will require up to 8 hours of studio work and two hours of live Zoom sessions (optional) per week; the amount of information would fit into 12 days of in-studio workshops. You will receive all the class materials and tutorials in PDF format, ready to upload to your computer. The videos are not to be downloaded but will remain accessible for one year. Your access to the course lessons and chat on the Ruzuku platform will remain open as long as I continue teaching and can pay for their services. I've used this platform for teaching my courses since 2016 and do not plan to quit.
