Steampunk Millinery: A Fascinator with Style

Ref: C3672792

This is a one day practical course where the learner will work with a range of formal millinery materials plus a range of fabrics and mixed media materials and items to create a truly one-off fascinator/headpiece that is inspired by and celebrates Steampunk. The learner will learn various stitching and bonding techniques to achieve effects with fabric and other materials. Each learner will be encouraged to follow their own ideas to create highly individual work. Learners can expect to complete a fascinator in the day and potentially take home samples of further ideas
