This past Saturday and Sunday, while some Art League-rs were busy painting at the Pennsylvania Lavender Festival, others were at the Madison Annex learning how to create fascinators — the eye-catching headpieces sighted everywhere from last year’s royal wedding to the Kentucky Derby.
Jan Wutkowski, a milliner with a workshop and store in North Carolina, taught the two-day workshop — “Fascinators: Hats and Headpieces for Everyone.” A long-time millinery artist, Jan studied hatmaking in Australia at the Melbourne School of Millinery in 1995 and has been teaching since 1998.
Jan will be teaching another workshop at The Art League in the fall: “Dyeing to Make Hats,” November 10–11. Stay tuned!
