Head-Wraps and Headbands: Millinery Techniques with Denise Wallace-Spriggs
January 23, 2021 @ 11:00 am - 5:00 pm
In this six-hour session, we will look at all three styles of head wraps, choose fabrics, cut and drape our wraps and learn to affix them to a lining base. The goal is a headpiece that is permanently shaped and can be worn as a hat or band. Using draping techniques with fabrics, students will learn how to create a comfy and stylish turban, head-wrap, or headband. Prerequisite: Basic knowledge of a sewing machine. Students must provide their own supplies and tools.
