JUNE 3-JUNE 6, 2021, FELTING, FOOD AND WINE IN NAPA VALLEY!!

JOIN ME FOR AN IMMERSIVE FELTING, FOOD AND WINE EXPERIENCE IN THE NAPA VALLEY



 It looks like there is finally a light at the end of this pandemic tunnel.  Many of us have already been vaccinated and the rest of us folks in the USA should be by the end of May.  Zoom has been great but there is nothing that replaces an in-person workshop experience.  It's not just about the learning but about the whole experience using all of our senses, the community, and the friendships we develop and sustain.  So we are very happy to announce that the workshop that was originally planned for February 2021 is now going to take place June 3-June 6, 2021.   I am so excited to be the first guest instructor at Carneros Studios located in the Napa Valley and housed in a 5,000 square foot barn with a lovely first-floor fireplace and gathering area.  







NUNO FELTED VEST WORKSHOP WITH BETH MARX 

Welcome reception - Thursday evening, JUNE 3, 2021 

3 day Workshop - Friday, JUNE 4 - Sunday, JUNE 6, 2021 

$1,250


This extensive workshop with Beth includes three nights of accommodations on property in the beautiful Carneros region of the Napa Valley.  Over the course of the weekend, you will enjoy a welcome wine tasting reception, three breakfasts, three lunches, and a dinner prepared by a local Napa Valley chef, in addition to Napa Valley vineyard views during your three-day workshop. 

You will use a resist to create a one of kind seamless nuno felted vest that can be worn inside out and upside down, hence the 4-Way Vest. You will learn how to make a pattern/resist from one of your own existing garments and to easily size it up to account for shrinkage using Beth’s “Easy Peasy Shrinkage Calculation” sheet. Beth’s method for pattern making doesn’t involve taking body measurements or using complicated math – you won’t even need to use a calculator. You will learn how to sandwich wool roving between layers of sheer silk fabric and embellish the vest as suits your taste and style. Beth will teach you how to create seamless edges, professionally finish the open areas like the armholes and hemline, and how to shape and size your vest to fit properly and flatteringly. You will also learn about various closures for your vest. Once you finish your vest, Beth will style you and take photos of you modeling your beautiful unique vest in a multitude of ways. 

Skill level: This is an intermediate felting workshop. Students should be familiar with how to lay out wool roving for wet felting. This workshop does require some stamina.  

If you are interested, don't wait too long to enroll.  Only room for 6 students.

This is a private studio in the beautiful Napa Valley that requires you to PRE REGISTER HERE.  Once you become a member (which may take up to 24 hours) you will receive approval at which time you can review the material & supply list and enroll in the workshop by clicking: SIGN UP HERE
