millinery course, day one

The above photos are snaps from around the lovely studio.

These pics are of what I achieved today. Tomorrow it's
decorating time. Super-fun. I've learned loads, and now
plan on taking a few more wekeend courses to learn how
to make other types of hats. This is the course I'm doing-

Vintage Style Textured Hat

Lynnette Lim's hats are known for their varied textures and beautiful
finish. She will share some of her secrets with you in this weekend
workshop. Cover a blocked sinamay base with leaves, petals, ribbon or
braid to create a wonderfully vintage style small hat. You will learn how to
construct a simple sinamay base from start to finish and also fashion your
charming trim from fabric. Lynn will show you ways to artistically
arrange your components to emphasise this feature.
