During the workshop I will demonstrate my signature techniques in sinamay giving you clear instructions and helpful time saving tips. I have developed these unique techniques to enable students to create hats without the need for brim blocks. You will be amazed by what you can create within such a short time.
The following techniques will be covered in detail.

 Covering an Alice band with sinamay and other options.
 Trims and embellishments.
 Special stitching techniques.
 Stand-alone techniques.

By the end of the workshop you will have mastered the techniques taught and created a beautiful hat or possibly two.
