Maggy Pavlou's Creating the WOW Factor March 3-6, (Saturday, Sunday, Monday, Tuesday) 4-day Class
We will begin by designing and making the felted cloth, then piecing and cutting this cloth into a finished garment and fusing the pieces with the needle-felting machine. No experience with a felting machine is necessary but students should have constructed a large felted garment before. By making 3 to 4 swatches of different sample fabrics, students will explore individual style and color combinations to determine their favorite for the large garment.
After the design has been finalized and the cloth produced, students will press the cloth, cut shape and piece together by hand sewing or needle felting, depending on our individual designs. Finishing details are important and with the goal that everyone will take home a finished garment, the students will also learn about closures and finishing details. Maggy will focus on raw edges and lightweight, flowing drape, both of which are hallmarks of her work. Students will also explore openings and stitched ridges in finishing their garments with individuality and creativity.
