In this extensive 4-day workshop with Beth, you will use a resist to create a one of kind seamless nuno felted vest that can be worn inside out and upside down. 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!


After you make your sized-up resist/pattern, you will then spend time making nuno pre-felts with an assortment of solid and/or patterned silks.  After that you will work on your sized up resist and use a sandwich technique to layout wool roving between layers of sheer silk fabric and creatively utilize the nuno pre-felts to create an abstract collage. You will also learn to make a variety of closures for your vest like a removable flower pin and permanent cord closures.
