One Hour Dress    •    Art Deco Fan    •    Pleated Fuchsias    •    Regency Reticule    •    Beginning Tatting






         1920s "ONE HOUR DRESS": A 2-SESSION WORKSHOP
         WITH CATHERINE SCHOLAR

         Saturday, July 9 & 16, 2022 — 10 AM to 5 PM
           $175


Want to clothe your inner flapper? Get your Downton on? Perhaps you just want to experience the ultimate chic of simplicity. The One-Hour dress was developed in 1923 by Mary Brooks Picken as a simple and versatile style that can be made into a tailored wool day dress, a breezy cotton summer frock, or a dramatic silk evening gown.
     On day one, we will review the style and look at extant and reproduction gowns in thee same style. You will then draft a pattern of yourself, make mockups, and then adjust carefully to perfect the fit. On the second day, you will make your dress.

         AN ART DECO CLAM-SHELL FAN
         WITH LYNN McMASTERS

         Saturday, July 23, 2022 — 10 AM to 5 PM
           $45 + $40 kit fee (payable to instructor)


A fan can combine functionality and frivolity as a device that can keep you cool as well as accent an ensemble. In this class, you will learn to construct an Art Deco period fan that would be the perfect accessory to complement your outfit for the Gatsby Summer Afternoon or the premiere of the new Downton Abbey movie.
    This workshop will take you from preparing the hardwood sticks, adding some surface decoration, practicing with a blank paper, folding the leaf, to gluing the leaf on the sticks. Students will have a choice of three different fan leaves each a reproduction of a 1911-23 art print. Students will be instructed how to choose once registration is confirmed.

         Pleated Fuchsias
         with Patrice Krems

         Saturday, July 30, 2022 — 12:30 AM to 5 PM
           $55 + $20 kit fee (payable to instructor)


You will be delighted watching these fanciful ruffled confections made out of French wired ombre ribbon bounce and twirl like whimsical ballerinas from the ends of the gimp stem. See the ribbon jump to life as you ruffle together the pleated ribbon and insert tiny balls of cotton and stamens to be nestled within each bloom.
     These dainty delights are the perfect size to be used as a fob on the end of a delicate embroidery scissor or zipper pull. Create a cluster and wear them as a brooch or use them as fringe on any number of things. Shorten the gimp and they can be turned into delightful dangling earrings. There are endless ideas and uses for these fanciful fuchsia flowers.

         Regency Reticule
         with Catherine Scholar

         Saturday, August 6, 2022 — 12:30 AM to 4:30 PM
           $55


One of the hallmarks of early 19th century accessories was the plethora of chic and innovative handbags, called reticules. The circular style, involving a central round medallion surrounded by gathered strip of fabric, is especially attractive and practical. Following period instructions, we will hand-sew our own circular reticules. Feel free to embellish your circular medallions before class: you will need two 4" circles PLUS 1/2" seam allowance all the way around.

         Beginning Tatting
         with Kevin Baum

         Saturday, August 13, 2022 — 12:30 AM to 4 PM
           $45


This class concentrates on the double stitch, which all shuttle tatting is based on. Once this first step has been mastered, we will learn to make rings and picots, and then how to connect rings through picots. The goal of these classes is to create, with practice, a simple edging of connected rings and picots.
