Pleated Felt Scarves with Mandy Nash

31 October @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm

Based on Canadian smocking, these techniques do not lend themselves to a real time workshop. Therefore, I have chosen to offer a demonstration where I will explain three different pleating techniques and how to apply them to make scarves. I will record the demonstration for students to refer back to, or watch later, if they cannot attend in person. I will explain how to prepare felt for the pleating, how to create the pleats and finish with various dyeing methods.
