Instructor Maegen Hensley walks students through the process of meticulously recovering a Victorian parasol from start to finish- drafting, patterning, fitting the mockup, sewing, and trimming.
Intermediate patterning and sewing skills are required for this intensive seminar, the class requires students to create their own patterns to recover their piece. Students will be able to apply these techniques to parasols of any era.
**Exclusive to this Parasol Master Class only**
Students have the option of either covering their own parasol frame or choosing an antique parasol from the teacher's personal collection to recover (priced in 2 tiers accordingly).
The candidates range from 1870s to early Edwardian, and are in very good condition. Parasol selection will be designated on a first-come, first-served basis for students who complete registration.
This 2 day seminar is limited to 10 students.
