Scarf School Graduation
You may remember our rather excited post after attending Scarf School back in March. This masterclass was helmed by our favourite scarf queen - Karen Mabon - and allowed us to design our very own wearable masterpiece. It was a fun (but exhausting) day as we cut and glued as fast as we could to get our creations finished. What followed was a whole lot of hard work from Karen as she had to edit and colour correct all the different designs. All that hard work paid off as Friday saw us return to the Hill Street Design House for Scarf School Graduation.
We were very excited to see how our scarves had turned out but even more excited to see everyone else's designs. We'd caught glimpses of some on the day but had been too busy concentrating to get a proper look. Plus there had been a whole other class the following day that we'd only see snippets of on social media. When we showed up on Friday we we're blown away by the finished scarves. The variety of subject matter, style and techniques was beautiful. Each piece was unique and we loved all of them. Seriously, we wanted to take them all home. Just look at them......
Seeing our own designs in scarf form was also pretty special. While there were things we'd both have changed about them if we'd had more time, we were more than happy with the final results. You can bet you'll be seeing them featured in some outfit posts real soon. And, as if our own custom scarves weren't enough, we were also presented with a graduation certificate. We love a good certificate, especially when it comes in pink. It was also a rather nice treat to spend an evening at Hill Street. It's such an inspirational space, filled with some of our favourite local designers. Plus there was pink fizz and cake on offer.
Karen was on hand to do the very official job of handing out our neatly rolled certificates. Having chatted to her and Jenny from Hill Street we do feel rather lucky to have attended the first Scarf School. While another masterclass may be on the cards for the future, they advised it would have a more refined format. Whatever form it may take, we'd be sure to be the first in line for Scarf School 2.
