Feathers – What You Need to Know – Workshop – 2hrs

Feathers are as many and varied as the birds they come from and the hats they are added to. However, they all have similarities, and you can use many techniques on most feathers. This workshop is committed to showing you what you need to know to use feathers in your millinery.

What will we teach?

Types of feathers and their anatomy
What feathers you can use
How to manipulate feathers
Mounting techniques
If you have already done one of my feather classes or want to go deeper, you can book for my more advanced featherwork class. 


All levels, no previous experience required
