Fishleather Flower Workshop
September 2, 2017 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm
Jane Fryers is an award-winning milliner with a passion for the unusual. She was given a QEST Scholarship in 2005 and has been a tutor at Central Saint Martins for the past five years. She travels the world teaching students how to create beautiful hats and flowers from fish leather.
In this workshop you will learn to sculpt a spray of roses using salmon skin. The process involves cutting the leather from templates, which you can keep and use again, stiffening and shaping the petals & leaves, and assembling the flowers and the bud. Jane will show you how to make wire stems so that the spray can be used as a corsage or attached to a hat or hairband.
You will need to bring sharp scissors for cutting cardboard and leather, and an apron to protect your clothes from the stiffener. You will also need a minimum of £20 to buy your salmon skins (cash only please).
All other equipment and materials will be provided and are included in the cost of the workshop.
