This is a very exciting time as I'm packing all my vintage suitcases full of glitter and glue, tissue and tinsel, netting and feathers, stapelers, scissors, ribbons, vintage buttons and lots and lots of beautiful paper to take with me to
Freya von Strapp's
Paper Hat and Fascinator Workshop
which I will be running with my lovely team of creatives at the super-gorgeous
Here we hope you will be inspired by all decades of great millinery design to create your own fantastical head gear out of paper. No matter if you are mad about Jackie O's pillbox hat or dream about the Ascot scene in 'My Fair Lady', maybe you adore Marlene Dietrich's 30s feathered and veiled fancies or Doris Day's bucket hat, this workshop will provide expert stapling, paper, scissors, double-sided sticky and masking tape advise to make you look like a retro star.
Come along and find us in the Upcycling Area which will also be holding
a variety of other workshops across the weekend, from fashion to upcycling classes; turn old records into trendy clocks or cake stands, take a tapestry workshop, snazz up old china with transfers, renew old clothes by learning how to ‘make new and mend’ or even revamp old furniture.
The Festival will take place from 11th-12th August 2012 which is VERY soon, so if you haven't got your ticket yet book soon, put on your best vintage frocks and come on down because the music is fantastic.
