Artificial Silk Flowers, a hands on workshop
In 1911, artificial flowers adorned the hats, clothes and decollete of everyone from factory girls to society matrons. Made in workshops, couture houses, factories, sweat shops and even in private homes, they were crafted into bouquets, used in wreaths, decorated homes and were fashioned into headpieces. Today artificial silk flowers are assembled in the same way as they were 100 years ago.

Learn the basic techniques of artificial silk flower-making from fabric preparation to shaping the petals using flower iron tools to assembling the finished hand-painted and dyed product.

Class intructor Erin Algeo has a background in Art History and Fine Art. She works as a curator of historical costume. Possessing a lifelong passion for historical fashion, she is particularly interested in the social forces that influence fashion and how people use fashion and make it their own. She does textile and costume restoration and conservation.
