Create your own small Fascinator-Introduction to Foss Shape.

No date scheduled. Private lessons available.

Foss shape is a thermal material that can be used to create shapes, which can then be wired, covered and finished with fabric.

In this short but fun workshop you will use a dolly head( provided to use) and a small iron (provided) shape a piece of foss shape to the head. You can free form the shape of the foss shape, with help and suggestions about which shapes work best.

Once shaped, you will hand wire the edge and then finish the underside and top side of the piece with fabric. A selection of fabric options from our wide collection of vintage and silk and laces are included in your millinery kit.  Ideas about how to drape and finish the fabric are also provided in this lesson. Once the fabric base is finished we then look at trims and beading ideas.

A basic set of materials including the foss shape, bias tape, drawing paper, wire, headband, threads, wire and fabric options are included in your millinery kit. You of course have the option to bring additional fabric options, trims etc to trim your shaped mini millinery fascinator, as well as your own sewing kit.

 Each class is limited to 4 participants.

The location is the shop of Wendy Scully Millinery, in the Emporium shopping centre, in Melbourne CBD. It is an air-conditioned space, with accessible facilities.

This workshop is suitable for intermediate+ students with good hand stitching skills, who would like to learn about foss shape as an introduction, and to experience using it in a free form manner.

This workshop is 3 hours to create the main base and cover it, ready to trim. As there are endless ways of trimming a headpiece like this we will discuss and look at some of these ideas that you can work on in your own time.

The image below is a free form foss shape base, which was then trimmed with individually bonded and wired petals- it is only an example of how you could  shape and finish your design.
