In this three day workshop students will learn how to make a seamless and reversible “Barcelona” vest. Students will learn how to nuno felt and how to work with different layers of silks and wool to create an interesting degradation of colors on both surfaces of the vest. During the first day, students will spend some time to create small samples to learn how to calculate the shrinkage and how to combine all the different silk colors. The second and third day students will apply everything learned during the first day into the design of their vest. At the end of the third day, I will spend some time to show the students how to make a simple pin that will allow to wear the vest in different styles. This vest will be a very sturdy but soft one that can be ideal to wear during formal and/or informal events.
