Authentic techniques for advance trimmings.
As hats become more refined to reflect our post-Covid lockdown desire for elegant simplicity reflective of life-style oriented, easier clothing, these simple hat styles will call can for trimmings with confident, clear lines.
The Trois Beaux (Three Bows) class is designed to introduce students to 3 different approaches in separate fabrications for stylish bow making.

Table4SIX offers limited places in an online forum to create the intimate atmosphere of the workroom table environment.
Session one will be three hours with approximately two hours homework before meeting again for two hours to finalise the three projects.
