Using darting and overlapping techiques to manipulate a foundation material, in this case sinamay, we will create a “dramatic” shape without using a block and cover it with feathers.
My ‘no waste’ philosophy will become evident in this workshop. This is a fun and contemporary approach to using feathers.
You will learn how to create a curved shape without using a block. You will also discover what is possible to make these beautiful sculptural shapes, with a chance to experiment and explore your own creativity to create your own designs.
