Instructor Profile - Nicole Chazaud
It is about this time of year that we start to get a head start on the creation of the student booklets for the fall workshops. Some of the materials that arrive are, quite simply, amazing.
For example, we received the above photos from Nicole Chazaud who teaches the Felt Fabrics for Interiors workshop. Nicole, formerly a corporate textile designer specializing in home furnishing fabrics, has becoming a feltmaker. She enjoys this versatile, spontaneous and small-scale method of creating patterned fabrics. Her works bring life to furniture and by extension to any room that contains a piece.
Below are additional images showing the range of Nicole's work - at times it is subtle and impressionistic and at times it can pack a chromatic punch that makes the heart soar.
As of this posting Nicole's workshop is almost full but we do have one or two spaces available.
