2-day Fantasy Hats Masterclass with Vladimir Straticiuc

We cannot always make every type of a hat with the help of a hat block. Sometimes we don’t have the shape we need or being a single piece. It might be too costly and inconvenient buy one. The best solution in this case would be to make this hat on a wire frame. So it would be very interesting to learn this technique.

We will start by making the drawing of the hat we want to make in the natural size and on this basis prepare the structure.The next step will be to assemble and fix all the part in one structure. The last step will be finishing the hat by covering the structure with chosen material like sinamay, pinakpok .

At the end of this workshop, the delegate will know what materials can be used to create the frame and the hat structure As well as finishing and decorating the hat.

You will learn Traditional Techniques suitable for *Theatre, *Bridal, *Horse races, *Catwalk, *Carnival millinery
