Ever found a kind of wool felt wearable - nuno felt dressing, I've expected to learn it. Today just finished the 3-day workshop conducted by the famous Lithuania felter Vilte in FILT Vitwerk in Baard, The Netherlands. Can't believe it ! This is such an amazing technique of making gorgeous seamless unique dresses. No doubt we students only learnt it by attending personally the workshop. You see I made it !Making the dress needs creativities, patience. Following the steps we can make chic and elegant dresses. During workshop it's not encouraged to take photos of process. Right after the class finished today. I can't wait and back to the lodging I immediately made a mini one for my relative girl, so that I can take photos of steps for future reference.
Who knows just combine wool, silk chiffon, some kind of fibre materials plus "secret skills", a stunning piece can be done in a few hours. I myself find it flexible and easiler than machine sewing.
Our workshop was held in this studio in Barrd. lt was spring time, sunny and windy at times. We packed warm in the well served studio. We'd lunch on the lawn, breathing the smell of nature.
Vilte introduced and demonstred the "tricky" ways of making. We tried and come out our own trials.
