Description

Have you used feathers on your hat before, but you couldn’t get them to look the way you wanted? Maybe you’ve seen a feather seeming to defy gravity on a piece and wished you could do the same. Well, Feathers – The Next Level is for you. Beyond the basics, we will be looking at using feathers for dramatic effect. 

What will we teach?

Shaping feathers
Advanced mounting techniques
Covering shapes with feathers
Feather mounts
We will work toward a small headpiece in this workshop 

Level: 

Intermediate – Previous experience with feathers or an introductory feather class is required. You should know how to strip, cut and generally use a feather.
 

Tutor: 

Lindsay Whitehead

Class Size:

Max 6 students
 

What to bring:

Many of the feathers and supplies will be used on the same piece, so please make sure your feathers look good together.
 

  • 6 Turkey Broads (Wing feathers)
  • Pk 100 goose nagoire (you may wish to have more than one colour that coordinate)
  • Additional assorted feathers if you want to include them in a feather mount. For example:
    • Coque tails
    • Peacock or ostrich herl (burnt or natural)
    • Biots 
  • Sharp scissors (fabric scissors are perfect). A small pair with a sharp point is also good
  • Millinery wire (any gauge) a few scraps is all that is necessary
  • Quick-drying glue like 450 or UHU All Purpose
  • Thread
  • Needles (different sizes)
  • An awl
  • A small finished hat base in felt, Fosshape, buckram or similar (to cover with feathers). This will form the piece you make. If you don’t have one with you on the day, you can purchase one.

 

Optional equipment:

  • Hair curling or straightening iron
  • Coloured markers
  • Superglue (Locktight Gell type)
  • A cutting mat and rotary cutter
  • Design Master spray paint in one or more coordinating colours to your feathers. (some provided, but if you have a particular colour you want to use)
