Ian Bennett - Sculpted Buntal Mats and Feather Fireworks

Book Now (http://weteachme.com/l/dz39ARor)


Using only a flat buntal mat and a small dome (veiling) block I will teach you how to sculpt, shape and create timeless headpieces. This short course is ideal for those milliners who are short on time but still want to create something with the WOW factor.

Have you ever wondered how to make Ian’s Millinery award winning feather fireworks piece? Here you will learn the secrets to Ian’s grandest creation of 2016: The Myer Millinery Award winner, Feather Firework. In order to participate in this workshop you must have done the wirework class of prongs and Alice bands. (See other courses or contact Torb and Reiner if you need to learn this)

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.

If you have any questions please feel free to contact the store.
