Workshops at the East Village Hats in NYC- this October


Sculpting flowers in thermoplastic

Sunday October 2nd

and Monday October 3rd 2022

10am- 6pm with an hour for lunch

sculpting techniques with thermoplastic is one of my favorite ways to create hats. It is a new technique which combines two materials thermoplastic and silk. As an artist it allows me to create sculptur flowers and other plants or organic shapes. I research them by studying their structure, outline and color and assemble them together using this unique technique. Once done, I turn to tend to the small details by painting, shadings and adding embroidered beads.

Whether you are a hat making fan and want to experience working with thermoplastic or you are an artist who enjoys creating three dimensional object and care to learn an amazing new techniques, This workshop is for you. In this class we will learn how to manipulate these materials by making patterns, hit treatments, fold and reshape as well as exploring different coloring techniques. Finally, we will create the headpiece base and will attach all pieces together.
