Elena Shvab Milllinery's best selling "Create a Fascinator Hat" is now available live online.
This one-day course will enable you to create your own fabulous fascinator hat and leave with the skills to carry on creating more. You’ll learn how to make a fascinator base, manipulate sinamay straw, use wire, work with veiling, and learn traditional millinery stitches.
We will meet via Zoom and will start with a short introduction to hat making, different hat styles, trimmings, and materials.
Then you will learn how to make the base of a hat using a polystyrene block, and how to wire and trim the edges. Then you will learn different techniques of trimming and decorating, including sinamay straw rolling, veiling, steaming and much more.
By the end of the session you will gain invaluable millinery skills and create a beautiful finished hat. The workshop will last up to 3.5 - 4 hours depending on progress.
