In this workshop, I set the task of creating a balance in the use of different materials in one product.
Aphrodite's Felted Jacket Creation Retreat
During this workshop, you will create an outfit with sawing sleeves.
Students will learn how to take measurements, make a template, and calculate shrinking as well as learning how to make a felt jacket double-breast. In addition, students will learn how to make straight edges, the three-dimensional product on a flat template, using felt technologies. Moreover, participants will learn how to easily transform the template from a jacket into a comfortable dress with pockets or a coat.
Immerse yourself in an interactive experience where you'll journey through the rich history of Cypriot wheat production. Get hands-on as you grind wheat using ancient hand-mills, just like in Neolithic Cyprus. Feel the texture of fresh flour produced from the very stone-mill.
But that's not all – you'll have the unique opportunity to learn the art of making traditional Cypriot bread, known as 'coulouri.' Let the essence of Cyprus's culinary heritage fill your senses as you master the secrets behind this time-honored delicacy.
