Do you have a favorite cashmere, merino, or boiled wool sweater that has outlived its wearability? Have you woven a spectacular small piece on a loom that you would love to wear? Or perhaps you have felted a small piece from wool roving in a workshop yet you don't know what to do with it? Learn different draping techniques Jasmin has developed over the past decade and apply them to make your very own cloche, turban, or beret. You will be using a wooden balsa hat form to drape your material into a hat. Jasmin will also be showing you how to make different trims to jazz up your hat.
Where? Espagnola Valley Fiber Arts Center at 325 Paseo de Oñate, Española, NM 87532.
When? Saturday, November 25th from 12 noon-4pm.
How much? TBD. Additional materials fee of $5 includes use of hat blocks. You must bring your own materials to drape and purchase your own embroidery thread, needle, quilting straight pins and a button, which are onsite at the workshop location.
Class size is limited to 6 students
Why? Because the possibilities are endless with one standard balsa hat block.
