Heavenly Headbands – October 26th

Under the guidance of milliner Celestial Closet, you will learn how to make a padded headband using foam and a headband base, create a halo headband shape, and cover the form with stretch fabric. Finishing techniques will be covered to ensure your piece looks as pretty on the inside as well as on the outside, and then it’s on to the fun of embellishing!

You will then be able to select from a range of embellishments including lace, fabric flowers, sequins and beads to make your piece one-of-a-kind. You’ll be provided with a small hat box to take your creation home safely, as well as instructions and further resources so you can make your own headbands at home! Feel free to also bring along old jewellery, flat buttons, or any small fancy pieces or trimmings you’d like to add to your creation! A selection of plain velvet fabric colours will be available on the day for the headband base.

Basic hand sewing skills are required. Pins, needles and thread will be provided.
