Have you ever fantasized about making your very own sinamay straw fascinator hat? 

In this one-day workshop, you'll learn how to shape sinamay straw over a basic balsa hat block.  Sinamay, an open-weave fabric handwoven in the Philippines from the fiber of the Abaca tree, is one of the most popular materials used in Millinery today.  

After shaping (also called 'blocking') the straw, you'll make your own ribbon, flowers and bows to decorate the sinamay base. 

Why? Because the possibilities are endless with one standard balsa hat block. Great for beginners as well as advanced milliners. 

$195 in advance plus $30 on day of workshop for materials, which includes step-by-step notes and a resource list. Class size is limited to 6 students.
