Head-Wraps and Headbands: Millinery Techniques with Denise Wallace-Spriggs
(January 23)

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.

Required Materials and Tools:

  • Fashion fabric, should be able to pleat or drape, not to heavy (1/2 yard for turban/head wrap, less for headband)
  • Lining Fabric
  • Coordinating Thread
  • 1” or 1/2” wide elastic (about 6” long)
  • Sewing Needles, Hand and Machine
  • Fabric Scissors
  • Head blocks, or Styrofoam head (can improvise with a coffee can, 2 small towels and packing tape or large rubber band)
  • Download the patterns from the instructor. Print them and cut them out.

For headband:

  • Structural fabric, such as buckram or med-heavy interfacing
  • Fabric glue
  • Narrow Metal or Plastic Headband (Alice Band)
  • Lining fabric
