Description
In the second half of the class, we'll cover the headwear that goes with the dresses, among which are the Steuchlein, the Bundlein. We'll discuss the different period names for these headdresses, and look at different styles depicted in the period art sources. Then we'll examine the period text and art sources for clues on how to make these headdresses. The instructor will discuss her methodology in recreating them, and what she has found in 6 years of hands on experience and experimentation. She'll show some basic veil wraps and show how to make your own.
