NEW MILLINERY CHALLENGE!!
Surrealist Headpiece Challenge
27th of Feb to 29th Feb 2024, at 7.30 pm BST!
Do you feel creative and would like a new challenge? I invite you to join me in a creative journey unlike any other – our Surrealist Headpiece Challenge.
Surrealism is on trend this summer and something I have always loved. When I was young I used to admire Miro’s work along with Picasso and Salvador Dali, I also like fashion designers such as Schiaparelli. Take a look at these artists to inspire you, Miro uses abstract shapes such as triangles, squares and wavy lines. Picasso draws abstract faces and Dali distorts objects, there is always a lot of meaning behind his work.
In this Challenge, we will create a headpiece and then look at different shapes to add to create a wonderful, balanced and surreal design.
This will be so much fun, and I can’t wait to see what you come up with.
I want to invite you to have fun crafting your very own piece of wearable art. It’s time to bring your creative spark and your ideas to life!
