Sinamay Twist Headband

December 6, 2020

In this 3.5 hour class, students will learn how to work with sinamay straw on the bias, roll its edges for a fray-free finish, and drape and twist it over a simple hat block to create a stylish headband. Several draping techniques will be demonstrated including basic twist, sailors knot and braid.

This turban-inspired headband was a Milli Starr best-seller for years and Laura is excited to finally share the technique in an asynchronous online format. Students will find this a versatile technique that can be used to create a variety of headbands and turbans, as well as trims for hats.

Skill Level: All

Format: Zoom

Requires 1.5 yards pre-stiffened sinamay and a balsa utility block (studio head), pinnable dome crown or styrofoam wig head. Full supply list and Zoom link will be sent after registration.
