Milliner Bridget Bailey returns to Chateau Dumas in 2018 to teach specialist pleating techniques and how it can be applied to millinery. You’ll make two pleated headpieces during the week as well as a collection of samples and explore the ways fabrics can be transformed by pleating. You’ll begin with simple techniques using different materials and build up to more complex constructions as the week progresses. You’ll learn how to enhance the pleating effects using textile printing techniques as well as how to colour and dye sinamay and abaca silk.
This workshop is suitable for beginners to millinery. Also included are trips out to local markets.
