¡Primer taller de tocados!

He organizado nuevos talleres para Junio, y cuando digo nuevo, digo nuevoooooo.
¡Por primera vez voy a enseñar algo relacionado con la sombrerería! :)

Me ha costado porque quería preparar algo que se pudiera hacer en una mañana o una tarde, lo que en la sombrerería de alta costura es bastante complicado; imposible hacer la forma en molde (hay que dejar secar cada una de las capas que conforman la pieza por separado, mínimo 8-10h cada), tampoco podía llevar unos adornos muy complicados (cosiendo todo a mano el tiempo se esfuma rápidamente).
Además mi intención era plantearlo en tela y alejarme de materiales más rápidos de trabajar y más vistos en tocados como el sinamay
Para más inri, me apetecía que todos los materiales fueran accesibles, para que más adelante los pudierais conseguir sin recurrir a tiendas especializadas de sombrerería.
. . .
Os presento el tocado “Disk” y los días en los que podéis aprender a hacerlo.
Y, para completar look, también he sacado taller de un clásico en Beruta: el bolso de mano.

Tenéis el precio, la explicación del taller, los detalles y particularidades del diseño etc. en el siguiente link. Todo bien ordenadito ;)

Por cierto, si estáis interesadas en los Disk del cartel, acabo de subir a la tienda el verde menta y el de rosas. El conjunto lunar va a tardar un poquito más, pero ya sabéis, si os urge poneros en contacto conmigo y os cuento. (*Conjunto “En la Luna” ya en tienda!*)

¡Espero que os gusten!

PD: ¿Os he dicho que lo bien que quedan incluso debajo del paraguas? XD



Lady #128

I told you how Inanna came to life in the previous post; a couple of weeks ago I went with her to the beach, to Getaria to be exact, and she came to life again. Here is Inanna and her tale.

. . .

“Descend to take breath”

It`s not true that we choose our battles -at least not always- what we choose is the path, and they come by themselves.

Inanna chose her path; she needed to go deep, up to the underworld to visit shadow. She knew that she wont be able to fight any more battles succesfully if she didn`t take that trip.

As the laws of the underworld demand, she got rid of everything she was wearing, one piece at the time.
Finally, naked, she met Her, the shadow was just the way she was the last time they saw each other.

She was still intense and powerful, but during this time in exile She learnt to shout even louder.
Inanna, vulnerable but pride, approached Her and asked, “How can you still be alive? What sense does it make, complaining all the time? Don`t you see how ridicule you are?”.
The answer din`t wait too long, She drop all her anger on to Inanna and opening each and every bound of her She killed her.

. . .

No one knows what happened next, neither how seven days and ten nights after, Inanna appeared in the same place that saw her disappear.

She was the same, but different.

. . .

*Inanna`s tale is inspired by the Sumerian myth “Inanna`s descent into the underworld”.

La leyenda de Inanna, e Inanna misma, ha sido la protagonista del último boletín. Ahí está la historia en castellano -incluida alguna errata que no puedo corregir, maldita sea- así que he decidirlo dejarla en el blog en inglés, así aunque dando vueltas nos podemos enterar todos y todas. Cuando la ponga a la web también estará en euskera, pero las batallas una a una mejor!

Dejo aquí el link de acceso al Berutanews n. 17:

A few days ago this was the aspect of a new lady.  Until I introduce her to you properly, we can call her “I”.
“I” has become a warrior; when I started working on her I wanted to make a lady covered in golden sequins and at first I thought it was going to be similar to “Black jewel” (which you haven`t meet yet) or “Dancing with myself”.

But as long as I was working I realised that she needed to become a diferent kind of girl.
Firstly these golden sequins were in a trim, so I had rows altogether and it forced me to go for another type of shaping around her. And more importantly it was not working well to cover the face with them like in the the other Ladies I mentioned.

So I changed completely the idea and went for the romantic but tough lady in which she has become, I`m so happy with the powerful “I”
I can`t wait to make the photo sesion to show her to you!
One of the clue elements that gave me the idea and character is the tiny ornament that you can see next to her on the table.

I found it at the flea market of Prague in the visit I made with Amadea. As many of you will know I am an ultra-fan of flea markets and second hand stuff, sadly in my town there`s no much of it and it`s hard to find treasures.
I must confess that I thought I was going to end my visit to Bleší Trhy barehanded, but in the last minute I found a basket full of ornaments and small parts of antique wooden boxes. I believe that made of copper though I`m not sure about it, the seller and myself got a hard but kind time trying to understand each other XD
So this little winged object (and another 6-7 more pieces) came with me to Pamplona with the intention to become a hairdress for a Lady.
So very soon you will know what else is behind it!

*Note: I have just remembered that a while ago I used another of these czech ornaments to disguise Belle, hahaha!
