Millinery Taster

In this taster session you will familiarise yourself with Sinamay and make some beautiful trimmings. We will explore different possibilities that this versatile material lends itself to, as it can be free formed (sculpted), blocked, used as the main material for either hats or fascinators or just used as a trim like bows, strips, swirls, curls and roses. After this session you will leave with a trim or two, which can also be used to decorate bags or shoes and with new understanding of the movement of this material and its true potential. This taster will be led by Morley tutor Vesna Pesic.
