Check out the video from one of the prior workshops.  Everyone had a spectacular time and went home with a beautiful and unique vest.  Students said that the shopping day in LA alone was worth the price of the whole workshop!  STUDIO 907 - 2017 Nuno Felted Garment Workshop from Beth Marx on Vimeo.

Take your felting to the next level with this extensive workshop with Studio 907's Beth Marx. You will have an amazing and unique opportunity to shop for silk fabric at terrific prices in downtown Los Angles.  And if you've ever wanted to learn (or improve on what you already know) to make a seamless garments using a resist, make your own patterns, de-mystify shrinkage calculations and learn how to use Beth's "Easy Peasy Shrinkage Calculation Sheet" then this workshop is for you.  Learn Beth's method for pattern making which doesn't involve taking any body measurements or using complicated math.  And the shopping day for silks in Los Angles is amazing - previous students have said that this alone was worth the price of the workshop! 

Come to sunny southern California and join Beth for this stimulating, hands-on workshop where you will be shopping for silk fabric and then creating your own unique felted seamless collage vest. 

Day 1, Monday, March 11, 2024
9 a.m. - 4 p.m.
Meet at Willow St. Metro Station in Long Beach
Day 1 will be spent shopping for fabric for your project in downtown LA's Fashion/Fabric District where a bevy of high-end gorgeous silks (solids, prints, burn-out) and other fabrics can be found at some of the best prices ever.

We'll meet at the Willow Street Metro Station in Long Beach to travel on the Metro train to downtown Los Angeles (50 minute ride) where we'll shop for silk fabric in the Fashion/Fabric District followed by lunch at a fun downtown LA eatery.

This is a unique opportunity to shop and consult with Beth and get the scoop on her favorite fabric shops in downtown LA's Fashion/Fabric District which is renowned for the wide selection at unbeatable prices.

You'll be able to buy all the silk fabric for your felted project as well as buttons, closures and other goodies. You will be amazed by the selection but you'll have Beth's guidance to help navigate what otherwise might be overwhelming on your own.
Fabric consultation and guidance; transportation to/from Los Angeles; and a sit-down lunch at a unique downtown LA restaurant is all included in the price.
