Come and enter the Parisian studio of expert milliner Estelle Ramousse and learn how to create everything from elegant wide-rimmed hats brimming with personality to unique character defining hats seen before camera and live audience to the hats which are a comfortable extension of someone’s personality for day-to-day wear.
Estelle Ramousse will share her expertise beginning with the basic techniques, tools and equipment of millinery. This includes creating a pattern, cutting and sewing this pattern and finally moulding this pattern on a block. Estelle will take each student from the prototype to the finished article and ensure that no steps are overlooked.
After receiving numerous requests, Ramousse recently began transferring her millinery skills into creating masks for live theatre in Paris. Her background research into the political, historical and practical influences of mask design has inadvertently led to a new avenue of creation which she will be happy to share.
