WIRE WORK, CRINOLINE AND COUTURE LACES – SEDUCTION BY DAY,SEDUCTION BY NIGHT

September 13 - September 15

Dive into 19th Century Millinery techniques and create a light and airy hat using Millinery wire, Crinoline and Guipure laces. The hat can be of a vintage design or very modern. It can be large or small, exotic or classical. It will have the appearance of the night sky as you fly through it with the Guipure Lace floating elegantly and creating silhouettes. In addition to being beautiful, your brim will also have an extra rigidity that will make your work to follow much easier.

Suitable intermediate/advanced
