You will experiment with different fabrics and how this affects the draping. Using this technique, you can make some sculptural, yet soft headpieces and hats. We will also be looking into how you can use stiffer fabrics with some pleating.
You will need
Pre blocked shape (sinamay, straw, fabric for draping - see below), pins and a needle and thread
A mix of light and medium weight fabrics
Light weight - Chiffon, organza, georgette, or silk. Something flowy is ideal.
Medium weight - Calico, cotton, cotton mix, light denim. Something that will hold a crease is good.
However, for this class, I would suggest a cheaper fabric, something you don't mind cutting into
