IDEAS for Classes On-Line:
Felt Upholstery Fabric
Feather Weight Scarves
Design and Styling Motifs
And whatever else you would like to learn.
HERE'S HOW we do it:
I break the sessions into one and two hour live time demos, slide shows and coaching, each class breaking into 1, 2, 3 or 4 week (or more) sessions. We set the dates which work best for us both, and meet up on-line at the planned time. I will have students do a bit of advanced planning, we often go back and forth by e-mail or video-chat before or in between sessions. During a session I will demo the day's goal, give instruction/tips/coach/brainstorm/etc. and then you do your own piece during that day, the following day or week. These sessions work well as almost-independant study, except for project's wet felting day, which we spend a couple hours on line getting you started, and then we check back in with each other, so I can see how you are doing or have done, answer questions and that sort of thing.
*If you would like a full day class we could also do that as well. Do you have a couple of friends who want to learn too? We can do small groups!
WHAT Do You Need?:
- a video-cam/laptop for your computer and the internet connection to support streaming (the better to see you with and sound; the better to hear you with )
- good lighting
- a place where you can work/lay out/wet felt - where I can see you through your camera
- your computer to view my slide shows or receive images and exercises from me
- some felting experience
