Natali Shvetz (Vinnica, Ukraine) is well-known in Russia and Europe. Earlier, she worked a lot with leather, but now felting is her priority. She will guide you through the process from constructing your custom pattern to laying out the wool and felting.
This tutorial will be dedicated to nuno felting: Natali will create a seamless jacket, but you can use the techniques and ideas in many other projects. We will make this model: Elegante bianco with rich nunofelted décor and double ruffle.
Natalia will explain how to construct custom patterns for felted garment having only basic measurements and how to lay out the wool in order to achieve perfect shape. She will talk about nuno felted surfaces which are the result of interplay between fabric (natural and synthetic), wool and decorative fibers (viscose, silk, bamboo). And now, good news: Natali does not use the electric sander.
