Millinery Masterclass – Italian Mesh Headdresses

July 4 - July 5

Would you like to broaden your skills in millinery techniques?

…learn how to create your very own headpieces, fascinators… transforming them into unique jewel headresses for an upcoming event?

…or perhaps you’re passionate about hats, fascinators, headdresses and would like to start learning more about the art of millinery!

The course is suitable for professionals in millinery and fashion, beginners who want to start out in the world of millinery or for people who want to make headdresses for an upcoming event.

On this 2-day course you will learn how to create two exclusive headpieces with Italian mesh together with other embellishments.  We will teach you how to form and shape this versatile material using different techniques;  make different leaves and flowers whereby you can create different floral compositions,  wire cristals and different embellishments and make beautiful designs which you will learn how to assemble onto a vine or headband with silk thread.
This is a completely hands-on practical learning experience  which focuses on the skills used to  design these  jewel headresses, where our creativity can run wild and where we can share ideas and inspire each other.  Creativity has no limits!!!
There will be two teachers so all abilities are welcome and to ensure each student gets personalized attention the class sizes are limited to 10 – 5 students per teacher.
Belen Escacha and Geraldine Penistone have been designing high fashion, custom made headdresses since 2008 and 2012, and have trained with national and international milliners. They are both members of the Spanish Association of Milliners.

All materials are included in the price.
