fiber fusion for hat making/Chicago area classes / school

July 1st and 2nd


Instructor: Tammy Deck   Learn the art of fiber fusion applied to hat sculpting/making.  Hand-Dyed Bamboo and/or Tencel fibers will be layered and bonded into a shimmering, permanet, paper-like fabric (water resistant). The resulting hats are lightweight, artsy and certainly one-of-a-kind. 

The first day is spent preparing our hat blocks, laying out the fiber, applying the bonding medium and draping/sculpting on hat blocks. We allow them to dry over night...releasing them, finishing and embellishing  the next afternoon.

  sample by instructor
Base fiber materials and supplies provided via the class fee. Come to class with basic hand sewing skills, a crown block if you have one (optional), sewing supplies and trimming option (ribbons, flowers, buttons & beads).
Wear old clothes to 1st class.

Date: July 1st and 2nd, 2013
Meets: Monday and Tuesday, 2pm to 5pm each day
Fee: $195 (all materials included)
