Millinery workshops here at Orsini-Medici Couture Millinery, in historic Pawtucket, RI, are on demand, scheduled at the student's convenience, and their ability to travel if they are coming from out of state. Classes are generally individual or in small groups, and are offered year round. We offer the unique and very convenient option of B&B-ing here at the studio. Our three day workshops are affordable, and B&B costs are not only a great convenience, but at a substantial savings. Students will enjoy a private room with A/C, and farm to table gourmet meals, for less than a hotel stay and restaurants!
We urge students to reserve their desired class dates at least THREE weeks prior, paid in full, to give time for ordering supplies, and meal planning. The three day workshops can be either weekdays, or weekends, and run from 1pm to 6pm each day. The cost of the workshop is $350.00, plus materials, which can vary, depending on whether we are working in wool felt, velour, sinamay (straw fabric), parasisal, or cut and sew designs in fabric. The B&B fee with all meals included is just $150.00, per day. Materials may range from $35.00 to $75.00 depending on choice of materials.
We have recently added a very special four day workshop for those who can attend!!
This workshop includes the final day of flower making!! The cost for this workshop is $450.00 plus an additional $25.00 for flower materials. For our students who will B&B for this workshop, the cost for the final day to B&B is discounted at just $75.00. So, the total for this workshop with tuition, material, and full accommodations is discounted at just $975.00. Three gourmet meals a day are included in this total package!! Without B&B accommodations, the total would be just $550.00. Workshops are tailored for all skill levels. Preferable form of payment is by check or money order. Funds may be transferred to our email account: (firstname.lastname@example.org) securely with PayPal at no charge, using their Friends and Family function. We also accept funds transfers from cash.me and Square.com. There is no charge to use these services.
Feel free to give us a call any day of the week at 401-475-3748, between 11am and 10pm, if you have any questions, or to set up a workshop schedule. There will be many details to discuss, as each class and student is different. No prior sewing experience is required!!
