The Joy of Sinamay

(This Course now finished – new dates for after Christmas, shortly to be announced.)

Indulge in an array of techniques to explore the charm of Sinamay.

Sinamay is an impressive, versatile millinery fabric derived from the abaca tree, a banana palm native to the Philippines.

Amazingly, this strong, woven, rough textured material can produce hat foundations with a sharp defined shape and yet, as if by magic, can be manipulated to produce trims as delicate as a butterfly.

By familiarising yourself in the various processes you will be “smitten “and the joy will be in “what ever takes your fancy “

The two-day Course will include all the materials to make a finished product.

Be enlightened by the qualities of Sinamay and the reasons for it`s popularity.
