Felted Poncho/Pullover Top
Workshop with Beth Marx
May 6 and 7, 2023

Take your felting to the next level in this intensive but fun two-day garment workshop. If you've ever wanted to learn to make a seamless felted garment 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.

After you have created a sized-up pattern to allow for shrinkage, Beth will teach you how to make a beautiful, stylish and wearable felted garment including how to professionally finish the open areas like the armholes and the hemline and how to shape and size your garment for a flatteringly fit.

Skill level: Advanced beginner/intermediate. 
Students should be familiar with how to lay out wool roving for wet felting. 

Material Fee: None
