If you happen to be in Madrid, or at a flying distance, you should not miss this opportunity to polish or kickstart your millinery skills at the atelier of Charo Iglesias. Charo is an “old school” milliner (meant as a GREAT compliment), her hats are made to haute couture standards, and she has a distinguished and faithful clientele.
You can see some of her work at her website: www.charoiglesias.com
These are the courses she will be giving:
11, 12 and 13 February 2011: FASCINATORS, BASES and TRIMMMINGS
24, 25, 26 and 27 February 2011: BLOCKING HATS IN STRAW AND FELT
2, 9, 16, 23, 30 March 2011: KNOWLEDGE AND MANIPULATION OF STRAW 1
18, 19, 20 March 2011: KNOWLEDGE AND MANIPULATION OF STRAW 2
This is a unique opportunity to learn from one of the best milliners around, and to do it at her own atelier. The only knowledge required is knowing how to sew by hand.
If you want details just let me know on the comments and I will email you the info I have (schedule, description of the course and prices).
