Silk Button Hat with Silk Rose Weekend Workshop
Time & Location
About the Event
As lockdown restrictions ease, I am gauging interest in workshops again. If you are interested in attending this workshop, please contact me through the website. I can then get in touch with suitable dates.
This workshop will enable you to create your own vintage style button hat along with your own matching hand painted silk rose. For shorter workshops, take a look at my Day Workshops.
You can decorate your new hat with a gorgeous silk painted rose created entirely by you.
This workshop will teach you how to block the fabric, how to wire the edge and how to trim the edge with Petersham ribbon. Simple trimmings such as hat bands will also be added to give your piece the finishing touch.
No experience necessary but a willingness to use hand stitching is necessary!
Tea, coffee and cake are provided throughout the workshop to keep those creative juices flowing.
For full day workshops, there will be a lunch break where lunch can be purchased from The Fold Café or brought along (I have a fridge for storing food if needed).
Free parking is available on site.
Materials and equipment:
All materials are provided. I have a wide variety of colours in stock but if there is a specific colour you wish to use, please get in touch with me ahead of the workshop date to discuss this.
All equipment provided.
I offer a variety of dates for my workshops, both week day and weekends. Please see tickets for dates.
All dates have a start time of 10.30 and an end time of 4.00.
If you are interested in this workshop but cannot make these dates, please get in touch and I will happily work with you to find a suitable date.
If you are travelling some distance, I have an arrangement with the Bank House Hotel which is two minutes from my studio. This allows any workshop student a discount off B&B or D,B&B rates. Contact me when booking and I can provide the discount code.
If you are interested in booking a workshop as a celebration, the Bank House and myself offer a package deal for 4 or more people including a workshop and spa package, along with accommodation. Please get in touch for further details.
This workshop is suitable for everyone but please be aware that there is a lot of hand stitching involved.
