Hand-dyed Sinamay Fascinator Class

Monday & Tuesday, October 15th & 16th, 12-6pm

In this two-day 10 hour workshop, taught by Laura Del Villaggio,  students will dye, block and design with sinamay straw, creating a fabulous fascinator with hand-dyed materials and unique trims, First, we will cover the basics of color and fiber-reactive dye, then experiment with dyeing sinamay yardage. Students can play with ombre or resist techniques. After our dyeing time, students will shape fascinator bases using wooden hat blocks. 

On Tuesday, students will wire and finish the fascinator bases. Laura will demonstrate how to make a variety of trims using extra sinamay. You will have time to play with the techniques then choose the best one(s) for trimming your fascinator base.

Class fee of $375 includes tuition and supplies
