Monthly Millinery Mentoring is an online interactive group for students who have previously attended my Freeform Sinamay workshop.
You have the opportunity to learn new techniques as well as further develop and expand on techniques that you have already learned.
I have developed new content for these sessions which will give you the opportunity to explore new techniques before anyone else. Some of the content will remain exclusive to these sessions.
Topics that we will cover in the initial sessions include:
Feathers - painting, cutting, mounting, printing
Straw Braid - vintage and modern
Crin - sculpting
Flowers - techniques to create individual flowers with a variety of materials. A fun approach to making your own stamens.
Silk Abaca - Alice bands, trims
New Advanced Felt - Vintage and Modern; including a new laser cutting effect technique
Advanced Freeform Techniques in Sinamay and Parasisal straw. Learn how to combine the two materials in a variety of ways.
Bonus technique - Freeform Crowns
Each month we will focus on a particular technique. Before each class, I will provide you with information on topics to be covered and a material list together with any preparation that is required.
These fun group sessions give you an opportunity to ask questions about the techniques and receive feedback. I encourage you to come to the class with questions so I can help you overcome any problems.
I have enjoyed teaching both in person and more recently on-line and I am now looking forward to getting to know you better and to share new techniques with you.
I will also be adding bonus content and fun challenges to get you thinking outside the box!
There is a dedicated Facebook group for Members.
The monthly sessions will last two hours and cost £30 on a subscription basis. Each live session will be recorded giving you the opportunity to rewatch each session after the class. Recordings will be exclusively available to students for 4 weeks after the end of the workshop. Workshops will usually be held on the first Thursday of the month at 5.30pm CET
A Zoom link will be sent out in advance of the workshop
