Veils: Classic to Couture

February 17 - February 18
Bay Willow Design, 222 East Virginia Street

Students will learn how to measure, cut and sew veiling, as well as the different types and widths that are available to modern-day milliners. We will work with 3 types of veiling in class: Russian, "Vintage" Honeycomb and Extra-Wide Diamond English Veiling and make 3 sample veils: blocked veil on base, gathered veil on headband, and a blocked & wired veil. This is a technique-based course (as opposed to project-based) so you will be working on veils only and not making a finished hat or fascinator.
