Starting now ,fascinator workshops !

Explore basic millinery techniques that will enable you to create a fascinator.  If you can sew on a button, you can make a fascinator and headpiece.  Understand the fundamentals of composition and balance as related to headpieces.  Discover millinery materials and techniques to manipulate fabrics and trims.  Create your own trims from feathers, fabrics and specialty millinery materials.  Work with hat elastics for this specific class.

The BASIC Materials will be mailed out to you few weeks prior to the class.  Maria sources her supplies from the UK, primarily, and has a lovely selection to choose from.  Please feel free to use any extra trims you want to adorn your work with.  This may include vintage buttons, lace, rhinestone brooches and so on.  If you wish to match up an outfit, please bring a swatch of it.

At the end of this class you will have a beautiful creation! THIS IS A BEGINNER class.
