Artisan Felting: Wearable Art
Author: Jenny Hill
This artistic, inspirational guide to wearable art shows you how to nuno-felt patterns and textures into luxurious fabrics like georgette, chiffon, and silk, then design garments to feature them. Using only hand friction, soap, and water, bond wool and fibers together to create lightweight, one-of-a-kind clothing and accessories. Fashion designer Jenny Hill’s striking, comfortable high-end garments have many fans in the world of artisan fashion, and she teaches you her environmentally friendly processes. Learn the techniques and skills with 8 tutorial-approach projects: marbled scarf with fringe, 3D textured poncho, felt fur vest, hand-dyed airy tunic, embroidered bolero jacket, tailored blazer, gown, and luxury coat. Each project has instructions, beautiful close-up photography of the steps, and fashion photos of the finished piece.
