Live face to face masterclass with international teacher

Exclusive Face to face masterclass.

10am-4.30pm  GMT 2 day course

Silk and Sinamay familiar materials for hat making - but what happens when you combine them together? Maor Zabar (https://maorzabarhats.com/) invented Sina-Silk using the two fabrics in a unique way and specialises in creating surreal and unexpected pieces of art to be worn on the head.

 

Maor is a costume designer who works in television, commercials and theatre. This is his only live course being hosted in northern Europe and is sure to be popular and inspiring.

 

During the class you will create a new material (Sina Silk) from a combination of sinamay and silk, and with Maor’s guidance you will build patterns, block a base and using painting techniques create textures which will be applied on your 3D creations.

First you will create the material base, then we will learn how to manipulate it using patterns, blocking and freestyle draping techniques. You will create 3D flora and fauna, paint them and turn them into beautiful headpieces.

 

This 2-day course is perfect for designers, artists and creative cosplay makers who want to use these versitile making skills to create beautiful unique designs.

What’s included within your course: All materials are included and the fascinating tuition from Maor Zabar.

Venue: Liverpool City Region (exact location to be confirmed)

Biography of your International teacher

Many know Maor for his unforgettable outfit he designed for the winner of 2018 Eurovision, Netta Barzilai, yet this talented designer's impressive record began long before:
As the grandson of a tailor, Maor started to sew and play with fabrics at a young age. Later he was inspired to become a designer. In 2003, Maor graduated with a degree in fashion and costume design from the Israeli elite institution, "Shenkar College of Engineering & Design" in Tel Aviv, and soon after opened his studio to begin working as a costume designer in theatre, opera & dance. In recent years, Maor has won numerous awards for his work and has secured his place as one of the leading costume designers in Israel.

On 2014 Maor started a millinery atelier which carries his name, "Maor Zabar Hats". Each headpiece is impeccably made by hand in his studio. Thanks to his unexpected, stylish, colourful and humorous design, in recent years Maor travels around the globe reaching out to his fans and teaching his unique techniques.
