Sneak peek for workshop 製作小窺

Invited by the Hong Kong Design Institute to run the nuno felt workshop in Sept, I've to experiment the fabrics and make these samples. 
 This workshop  is the first ever organised by the Institute. Wet wool felt is not quite popular in Hong Kong as most of the year is hot and humid but we do have a few cool and chilly months.  The nuno felt tecniques can be applied to make all-season wearable art.  A lightweight chiffon summer top is airy and a scarf with a little bit raw fleece is warm enough in the winter days.  My nuno felt workshop highlights are  textural surface, eco and using minimal tools.  A summer chiffon top is going to be taught.
日前我測試物料及製作了這兩件樣品,    為的是「香港知專設計學院」九月份開辦的「嶄新混絲戟絨工作坊」作準備   香港天氣潮濕悶熱但仍有幾個月清涼甚或寒冷的日子, 因此我以羊毛混絲製作了夏日輕爽雪紡上衣及秋冬合用的羊毛混絲被肩.  課程重點是著顯製成品的表面獨特質感 並以環保、 物盡其用及少工具的製作法完成。  
 This is made of crinkle chiffon, wool connected waistlines and rope. No sewing is required.
 Textural surface is what I wanted.  The brownish are my own dyed silk scraps with leaves.

 This scarf base is chiffon, also the brownish silk is own dyed.
With a little bit raw fleece of white and brown, this shawl is warm enough.

The eco print silk scraps and natural wool are matching the theme of "Eco". 
 My Ooak -   "one of a kind" piece.
  Nuno felt is new to Hong Kong, I hope this will bring out the creativity of the versatile medium of wool to make wearable art.
