Weekend with Christine Rohr

“Un Bouquet de Fleurs”

Learning Feather Flower Techniques.

The Riverina Millinery Association was thrilled to recently host Austrian Master Milliner, Christine Rohr for a fabulous weekend workshop of Feather Flower making.

Delegates came from far and wide across New South Wales to join the class, which entailed creating a delicate custom wire frame which in turn, produced a wonderfully light and airy foundation for their feather flower headpieces, equally suitable for both an evening soiree or raceday afternoon.

Currently studying in Austria for her PhD in Millinery, Christine demonstrated the precision wiring and binding processes for the “Un Bouquet de Fleurs” Headpiece. Students spent considerable time considering their choice of feathers for each flower created in order to compliment the overall look and after two days of focusing on trimming feathers, wiring and binding, came away from the class with delightfully ethereal feather headpieces and a greater understanding and appreciation of the technique.

Christine operates her own Atelier and Academy in Austria, we thank her for sharing her expertise and look forward to her return to Wagga Wagga in the near future.
