JC03 Fabulous Felt Flower Fascinator with Dawn Edwards

In this fun hands-on workshop, we will transform Merino wool into beautiful felt flowers using just our hands, imagination, and a little soap and water. This magical process is called wet felting. From here, we will transform a foundation base (provided in your materials fee) into a lovely fascinator suitable to wear on your next special outing. What is a fascinator you ask? A fascinator is a fun and beautiful alternative to a hat, a headpiece that acts as an accent for the hair. Kate Middleton is frequently photographed wearing a fascinator, as it’s one of her favorite accessories. Proficiency Level: Suitable for all levels. Bring to Class: Bath sized towel. One pair of sharp scissors. Needle & thread for attaching your flowers to the fascinator base and a fine needle, thread and beads if you’d like to add beads to your flowers.

Class fee: $100.
Materials fee (payable to the instructor at the start of class): $20.
