Vintage Straw Cloth
November 5, 2021 - November 12, 2021
In this two-day, 7 hour workshop, students will learn how to work with vintage straw cloth, creating a pillbox, beret or percher style hat. I will provide an overview of various vintage millinery textiles that can be categorized as straw cloth, including knits and wovens. Students will learn how to properly build a buckram foundation prior to covering it with a tip and bias sideband. There will be time allowed for draping a bow and adding trims. Students will also learn how to pattern and sew a pleated silk lining so the inside is as beautiful as the outside.
5 & 12 November
