Originally from Zambia, Sharit is a fashion designer specializing in wearable art using felted wool. She earned a degree in Fashion Design and Knitwear from the Nottingham Art and Design University.  She then moved to the Netherlands, where she developed her own collection using the felting technique, showcasing her unique style and cultural flare. Sharit developed a passion for creating felted garments and she believes that felt provides an endless array of creative possibilities, which she pursues by constantly researching and experimenting with new materials and techniques.

Sharit’s one-of-a-kind creations are breathtaking combinations of natural fabrics, raw materials and organic fibers. Her commitment to the sustainable use of wool inspired her to create the Sharit Ethical Fashion line, which is rapidly becoming a recognizable brand in the Netherlands.

She loves to share her knowledge of garment felting — an ancient method of garment creation — using her own found and tested techniques

Sharit has taught around the world, including in Australia, Africa, Europe, New Zealand, South America and many locations throughout the United States.

About the Workshop:

Sharit's master classes are all about fabulous fashionable wearables. Students will be working with Sharit’s very simple, but effective pattern with the focus on designing and making a nuno-felted, silk and merino wool flared A-line dress. Students will be encouraged to design creatively, considering carefully the effects of their color and design choices on the finished garment, as well as concentrating on surface design using different techniques and materials.

Students will learn how to create pleats to add extra float accent into their projects if desired.

  • You will learn to develop and enlarge your own pattern with a very simple, but effective method for a pattern that will suit and fit you.

  • In addition we will be creating textures on the surface to design a one-of-a-kind dress. You’ll want to bring your stash of fibers and experiment with a variety of textures (linen, soy, silk fibers, wool locks, yarns, etc.).

This Master Class is a great opportunity to learn how to create fashionable and wearable dresses. You will be making pieces of art and unique garments that come into full expression when worn. Students will be encouraged to freely use their imaginations. These will be days full of surprises. And you will take home a dress that you made, valued at $1,200!
