Fashioning the Rose | Fan-making Workshop

Join The Fan Museum’s expert fan making tutor, Caroline Allington for a special workshop inspired by our latest exhibition, Wild & Cultivated: Fashioning the Rose.

Using reproduction prints of an original early-20th century rose-shaped fan leaf from the archive of renowned fan maker, Duvelleroy (displayed in the exhibition) participants will learn how to pleat and mount their very own ‘fontange’ type folding fans.
