Large Felt Garment Workshop with Horst

Under the guidance of US couture designer Thomas Horst and Irish felter Nicola Brown design, felt and dye your very own large garment!

Over the course of this three day workshop discover the techniques that Horst uses to create his fabulous one off felt garments! Using these methods we should have time for every participant to design, felt and dye one large piece in addition to a second smaller piece such as a sleeveless vest, funky bag or lightweight and warm trellis wrap. This is a wonderful opportunity to meet Horst on his first ever workshop outside the USA and to mingle with felting participants from Ireland, England and Denmark!!! Images of Horst's work may be viewed on his website .
