Vintage Button Percher Hat 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.
Come and learn how to create your own vintage style button hat/fascinator with it's own gorgeous bo
This workshop will show you how to ‘block’ the fabric over the button hat block, how to wire the edge and how to trim the edge with Petersham ribbon. Hat elastic will be added so that it can be worn securely.
The hat will have a lining inside which can be complementary or why not go for something striking underneath!
This workshop is suitable for all as no previous experience is necessary. Please be aware that hand stitching is involved though.
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 included. A selection of fabrics and linings will be available but if you have something specific that you own and would like to use, please get in touch so we can discuss suitability.
I offer a variety of dates for my workshops, both week day and weekends. Please see the tickets page for all current 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.
