ONLINE Millinery Masterclass – Italian Mesh Headdresses
October 22 - October 23
Italian mesh is a wire mesh ribbon enamelled in different colours, which can be stretched, shaped and twisted to make embellishments for headdresses and hats.
This 2-day online course is suitable for all levels.
We will teach you how to form and shape this versatile material using different techniques to make petals, leaves and flowers so as to create different floral compositions. Then, we will proceed onto wiring crystals and different embellishments which will be assembled with silk thread onto a vine and metallic headband.
This is a completely hands-on practical learning experience which focuses on the skills needed to design these unique headdresses. By the end of the course, you will have created two exclusive headdresses.
Belen Escacha and Geraldine Penistone have been designing high fashion, custom-made headdresses since 2008 and 2012. They are both members of the Spanish Association of Milliners.
