Millinery is the craft of creating beautiful headpieces. We would have a go at trying different materials used in millinery- from feathers to beads, from sinamay to straw. Using best grade professional materials we would make different shapes: swirls, bows and curls. We would learn about beautiful finishes such as bias borders and trims. And all these we would express our personal touch by adding some bling. We would find out more about how to put beautiful designs together, how to use colours and compositions to make a wonderful millinery class. There would be lots of tips and examples on the way.
