Workshop: Fabulous Felt Boa

This one day workshop teaches students to make a dramatic cobweb edged felt boa to the length of their choosing. Suitable for both beginners and more experienced feltmakers, participants will enjoy making this wearable piece, as well as learning the techniques of frilled cobweb edges and fabric/fibre inclusion in feltmaking.

Workshop convenors, please contact me for tutor fees and availability.

Svenja has always had an interest in the arts, from experimenting with painting, printing, and paper making, through to theatre, silk painting, jewellery making, shibori shaping and dyeing, and fashion in later years.  In 1996 she completed a Bachelor of Arts in drama, which led to studies in Fashion Design at Metropolitan South Institute of TAFE. In 1999 she completed a Certificate II in Drawing, which then led to studies towards a Bachelor of Arts in Art History. Since 2009 she has been studying Fashion Design, again at MSIT, and is currently enrolled in the Advanced Diploma in Applied Fashion Design and Technology. She has been experimenting and participating in workshops in textile art since 2001, beginning with free motion embroidery and gravitating towards feltmaking in later years. Along the way, hand dyeing of fabrics and fibres has become a large part of the process, as it offers greater creative control. Since 2008, Svenja has been a finalist in the Brancott Estate World of WearableArts 5 times, with 2 of her winning garments being purchased by the World of WearableArt Museum.
