Perchers & Platters Workshop
June 11 - June 13
Perchers and Platters are the darlings of the Millinery world, but what exactly are they? These architectural marvels are at once vintage inspired and deliciously modern. Seen on the Royals as often as at the Races, these designs hold incredible detail…and sometimes seemingly impossible angles! Learn how to create pieces that hold their placement with style, comfort and stability. It’s the engineering behind the design that make these gravity defying pieces so magical. Students are welcome to use felt or straw for their projects. Depending on the complexity of the design and the pace of work, students can expect to finish 2 pieces in this class.
