Learn to Hand Cover a headband to use on its own or as a base for future millinery projects.
You will love the hand making techniques you will learn and will leave with lots of tips on how to get the best professional look. Various techniques are used and demonstrated, basic headband shapes provided.
I love to use natural fibres like silk and cotton and hemp to cover a band and I will supply some small amounts of fabric for your use but if you have a nice silk you would like to use then bring it along. Mostly hand sewing with small amount of sewing machine skills.
Julie's studio is in a converted 1851 stables building within the JamFactory Artisans studios, part of the Seppeltsfield Winery Complex in The Barossa Valley, set in beautiful rolling hills and vineyards.
