5 hour workshop
In this class, you will expand your millinery knowledge by learning how to block a bespoke headpiece on our wooden millinery blocks. You will then cut, wire and edge the headpiece using age-old techniques. Katherine herself will explain and demonstrate the steps and practice of making a headpiece. You will also learn about cutting and curling plastics, metal, twings...
The cost includes coaching, material and guidance throughout the duration of the class.
The materials you will be using on this day are plastics, metal, twigs, loafing felt etc. We do offer a range of colours in fabric and trim but feel free to bring trims or fabrics of your choice too (you don't have to).
You will be in a group of 5 people in the iconic Oxo tower in our beautiful boutique that looks on the river.
