Spring Millinery – Buckram, Lace and Blossom

Big Cat Textiles millinery spring school

This millinery spring school will provide an opportunity to explore hats from the 1940s and 50s. You will look at a number of styles using traditional techniques, study some original pieces and develop a personal response to them.

Over the three days you will develop skills required for blocking and shaping buckram, wiring, draping, lining and trimming, and make two resolved headpieces, one from buckram and fabric and the other, a cocktail hat, from sinamay. The class fee includes all basic materials.

We guarantee a small class size with lots of individual tuition to realise design ideas. You will need basic hand sewing skills for this workshop.

Price: £285 including basic materials
