Have you ever wanted to make your own sculpted plastic shapes, things that have flow, in shape and form sculpted dynamism and clean strong lines. With a heat-gun and special heat moulding plastics I will show you how to create flowers, bows, twists, spikes and flowing shapes. These can be painted into and fully customised to make an incredible and bold statement with the added bonus of no edges to fold or handsew.
Pease note: The materials kit will include what you need to make what Ian is teaching and some odd equipment that is not normal to millinery. If time permits you can make more and/or buy further supplies to take home. You will need to bring your basic millinery kit as we won't be providing this.
This course includes plastics that are not yet stcked here at Torb and Reiner. We have esimated the price of these and it may change slightly. If it is any moe we will let you know and if it is less we will credit you the difference for any supplies you may buy on the day.
If you have any questions please feel free to contact the store.
