Alisa Bordo is a felt textile artist living in Mannheim, South Germany. For almost 15 years she has been creating felted accessories: scarves, shawls, wraps and hats. Alisa invites you to a virtual tour through her atelier and her art market stand. In this tutorial, she will introduce to you some of her favorite felting techniques, supplies, tools, and her strategies as a maker. Cobweb scarves are the focus of Alisa’s business strategy. Every year, she creates hundreds of one-of-a-kind scarves and shawls for the German autumn and Christmas art markets. How does she optimize this process, choose the best materials, uncouple the “dry” and “wet” phases of felting? How can she avoid burning out? How does she make the beautiful labels and invent new “yummy” names for her scarf’s collections?... She will share these secrets with you.
