Learn how to work with a wide range of materials and intricate techniques while following detailed, step-by-step instructions to recreate the gold and horns headdress. This workshop is designed to give you the knowledge and confidence to create your own future designs as well as to work with more challenging materials and glues.
This headdress design is an advanced level design - if you are new to headdress-making, I highly recommend starting with my Beginners Fan & Floral Workshop.
