Join Sophie from Remoli Millinery for a creative introduction to the art of fascinator making.
Full-day sessions in Stirling
You'll learn some of the basic techniques and create a stunning personalised fascinator to take away with you!
Each class has a different theme, you can attend any class in isolation or attend a series to gain comprehensive tuition in a variety of styles and techniques. You will come away with a finished piece from each class.
Some components and themes that are available are:
-Roses (two different varieties)
-Generic Flowers (large/broad petal varieties)
-Feathers (artificial, handmade)
-Christmas Tree Fascinator (seasonal)
-Vintage Styles/1920’s style
-Mother of the Bride
Stirling - Full-day classes are divided up as follows:
-Cala lilies, leaves, loops and feathers
-Roses (both varieties), leaves and loops
-Pansies, Daffodils, hand-stitched embellishments and loops
-Flowers, Sunflowers, leaves and loops
-Bows, loops, feathers and crinoline
-Vintage styles incorporate bows and Cala lilies, with vintage colours.
-Bridal & mother of the bride/bridal party. (Suitable for hen do’s)
In each full-day class, you can expect to learn 3-4 of these techniques depending on time, component and ability. Some components require more hand stitching than others.
While all classes are suitable for sewing beginners then I would recommend that if you are looking for a class with minimal stitching that you go for the Cala Lillies class to start with.
Private tuition is also available on a 1:1 or 1:2 basis in your home or mine. I can tailor private sessions around particular elements you are interested in and generally more is achievable in private sessions. Please message me for details.
