About this class

This full-day class will make you a silky-smooth (pun intended) maestro when dealing with tricky fabrics. Fabrications' founder, Barley Massey, will guide you through the process of making a pretty camisole top and a pair of knickers from silk scarves and clippings.


Did you know

Silk became a prized export for the Chinese. Nobles and kings of foreign lands desired silk and would pay high prices for the cloth. The emperors of China wanted to keep the process for making silk a secret. Anyone caught telling the secret or taking silkworms out of China was put to death - woah!!
