felt boots on high heels
April 6-9, 2017 by Natalya Brashovetskaya
HIGH HEEL BOOTS of FELT!
Renowned Fiber Artist and Master Footwear maker, Natalya Brashovetskaya, born in Ukraine and living in Cyprus has continually evolved her natural artistic talent into a gift for making modern footwear that is sturdy, strong, but with a sleek and stylish flair. It needs to be emphasized that these are not like any other felt shoes you have ever seen or worn. They are sturdy and hold their shape because they are proper footwear that happen to be made of felt rather than leather or other materials.
Natalya has prepared a completely new course during which students will receive a complete skill technique. For this workshop, she developed a program, which will include universal pattern building. She will share my knowledge and ideas with participants. This pattern should help to create different kinds of shoes, including shoes with and without heels.
The goal of the workshop is to give you the tools you need to create and customize your own footwear that are both water resistant and orthopedic as they are made for your feet. The course will cover tips for creatively improving the design of your own high heel boots. The workshops will be filled with invaluable practical and technical information that will inspire your own creativity. The course is entirely interactive with Questions, Answers & Discussion throughout. In this workshop the students do all of the creating. There are no pre-made kits. A complete programm you wil get by sending an email to atelier Fiberfusing
