I am continuing to work with the wonderful Airyfairy cupcake boutique and be a part of their programme of classes at The Classroom on School Lane. There are so many to choose from so do have a look at their website. My vintage accessories based classes are scheduled in as follows
7pm Wednesday 12th Oct - Marvellous Mini Vintage Headresses
A 1 hour 30 mins class where we learn some basic sewing skills and ways to embellish a mini fascinator base/comb to create something kitsch, cute and unique.
£20 inclusive of all materials and your finished piece.
This is a perfect introduction into how to make headresses and is great for the not so confident or never sewn before kinda gal. Look at what you could take home with you!
7pm Wednesday 2nd November- Shouting about Shoe Clips
A new 1 hour and 30 min class where we use vintage clip on earings to make unique updates for those plain ballet flats you are sick of the sight of!
£20 inclusive of all materials and your finished shoe clips
Shoe clips were really popular in the 50s and 60s, favourite eras of mine when ladies where so elegant. Used to embellish and update plain shoes. No need for a new pair for this year's Xmas party girls- just update with shoe clips! Take a peek at some of my bridal shoe clips below for inspiration of what you could make at the workshop. You are very welcome to bring your own earings to use if that is what you would prefer.
7pm Tuesday 29th November- Fabulous Full On Vintage Headpieces
A 2 hour 30 min class just in time for the Xmas party season. This would make a brilliant girly Xmas present or party activity too for the Xmas period. We go more in depth in this class into how to fabric cover your fascinator bases, make birdcage veils and use millinery finishing techniques in addition to using fabulous feathers and sparkly buttons and trimmings
£35 inclusive of all materials and your finished pieces
All the classes include all threads, needles, scissors and fabric glue and we have loads of fun trying things on, looking in the mirror and posing retro style! Tea and yummy cake is available from the Airyfairies at the start of the class. Please enquire if you would like me to run a private party for you at the Airyfairy boutique- I can do so alongside their afternoon tea service. Great Xmas party idea!
Talking of parties, I am already getting bookings for March 2012 Hen parties! Take a look at my webpage here for details on this and how to book.
