Yards of Fun Workshop
June 11 - June 13
Maybe you’ve been wondering what the difference is between Pinokpok and Jinsin. And abaca? And Sinamay? And what in the world is Paris net? Take advantage of this 3 day class and get to know all about these beautiful materials. While they all come on a bolt, they have as many differences as they do similarities. Find out how they block (and IF they block!), how they roll and how they drape. This is a wonderful way to get to know all these materials, and while we are at it, we will throw in horsehair too. Students will complete 2-3 pieces in this workshop, depending on pace and complexity of design. Also, please note that no dying will be done during this class.
