Tortured To Terrific: Techniques In Modern Millinery
June 10, 2018 – June 16, 2018
In this workshop students explore millinery mediums and how they can be “tortured” by the process to create something “terrific” as an outcome. Participants will create surface design elements to fabrics, eco-dye several types of millinery straw, felt and fabric, and use free-form shaping techniques on felt, leather and straw. Creating four hats, you will lock over millinery hatblocks, cover buckram hat frames with eco-dyed fabrics, and hand-sculpt straw, leather and felt. Also, students learn proper millinery stitching and finishing techniques. Some millinery and hand- sewing experience helpful but not required.
COURSE FEE: $525
