Event description

Description

Create the illusion of pleating and folding beautiful fabrics over your millinery bases.

In this one-day course students will learn to create a beautiful and stylish silk pleated pillbox.

Starting with a pre-made foundation, one will learn the process of using bias cut fabric to create the couture finish of the silk pleated hat. Students will leave with a near completed hat, but may need to finish some detailed hand sewing work and lining in their own time.

Ideal for all levels - hand sewing skills are necessary, though previous millinery experience is not.
All materials will be provided. Students are asked to bring a sewing kit to include -

Dressmaking Pins
Millinery needles
Fabric scissors
Rotary blade
Thimble
Tape measure
Self-healing cutting mat (if you have one)
Straight edge

There will be a 1-hour break for lunch. Students can bring their own lunch or purchase something to eat from one of the nearby cafes or restaurants. Tea, coffee and snacks will be served throughout the day.
