Sinamay Twist Headband
In this 3.5 hour class, students will learn how to work with sinamay straw on the bias, roll its edges for a fray-free finish, and drape and twist it over a simple hat block to create a stylish headband. Several draping techniques will be demonstrated including basic twist, sailors knot and braid.
This turban-inspired headband was a Milli Starr best-seller for years and Laura is excited to finally share the technique in a synchronous online format. Students will find this a versatile technique that can be used to create a variety of headbands and turbans, as well as trims for hats.
Skill Level: All
Requires 1.5 yards pre-stiffened sinamay and a balsa utility block (studio head), pinnable dome crown or styrofoam wig head. Full supply list and Zoom link will be sent after registration.
