Last in our Fall Workshop Series :: NUNO FELT 4+WAY VEST with Marjolaine Arsenault


Marjolaine is a Canadian instructor and member of felt :: feutre canada who is making the jump to on-line teaching. She was awarded the Collector’s Award at the Palm Beach Fine Craft Show and the Outstanding Achievement Award at the Chicago Botanical Garden Craft Show. Her collection was presented in the Electric City Fashion Shows, Saratoga Springs, NY in 2016 and 2017. Her garments were published in Worldwide Colors of Felt and in Fiber Art Now Magazine.

This amazing four way vest in her signature stained glass technique sold out quickly for Symposium 2018. This event hosted by felt :: feutre canada was her first on-line workshop.

Marjolaine presented a three day class to create a unique vest that you can wear four different ways: inside out and upside down. During this workshop, students explored colours, texture, composition and design. They created a very lightweight vest that will be the inspiration for future garments. Various wool layouts were explained to create different effects. Students worked with silk hankies and silk roving to paint on wool.

And as a bonus... students received instructions on how to create a unique pin to close the vest.
