FEATHER-WORKING SEMINAR

for Wardrobe Professionals
Monday, June 17th, 2019

Lynne Mackey Studio is offering a one-day feather-working seminar specifically tailored to Wardrobe members on Monday June 17, 2019 at our studio in Manhattan. This is a small group (10 max) workshop where we will start with the basics and work our way up to more advanced techniques.

This will be a hands-on workshop. We will start with the basics of feather-work: the care of feathers, how to curl and shape various kinds of feathers, and feather wiring techniques. We’ll cover basic cleaning and dyeing of feathers, as well as attaching them to hats and costumes by sewing or glue. We will also demonstrate how to willow ostrich plumes. (See the peach plume on the upper right in the picture.) We’ll try our hand at how it was done “back in the day”, and then at a less time-consuming modern method.

The fee for this class is $300.00.  All supplies are included in the cost of the course. Each person will receive his or her own feather-curling knife to keep. This is a vital tool for curling almost any kind of feather. Over $50 worth of feathers will be supplied to work with: both ostrich and goose in an assortment of colors. (If you would like specific colors of feathers you are also welcome to bring your own.) Materials to build a feather wiring board will also be provided, and you’ll be building one to take for your future feather wiring needs.

Space in our workroom is limited, so it will be an intimate seminar providing ample opportunity to have your questions answered and gain hands-on knowledge of feather techniques.

Please contact us by email or call us at 212.352.0668 (speak to Lynne or Camilla) to secure your spot, for payment information, and location..

We will be starting at 10:00 AM and finishing at 6:00 PM with a break for lunch.

We hope to see you there!
Stay tuned for further workshops!
