Sinamay Masterclass with Bridget Bailey

Sinamay Masterclass with Bridget Bailey

Sunday May 27th 9am-6pm and Monday May 28th 9am-6pm both with an hour for lunch

Bridget has a reputation for intriguing ideas and clever making.  Learn some of her special ways with sinamay to give the familiar material a new lease of life.

The techniques shown will include dying and colouring, making delicate sinamay leaves, flowers and feathers, neat rolled edges, perfect points and covering a headband in sinamay. All these skills and techniques are useful in millinery and will improve your finish.

This course is about practicing and understanding techniques rather than making a whole piece. Bridget finds the learning is very different when we do it in this way and better for everyone doing the techniques for themselves afterwards.

No previous experience necessary
