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.

Date: July 1st and 2nd, 2013
Meets: Monday and Tuesday, 2pm to 5pm each day
