Cost is $350 if you bring your own lycra and net, $425 if I supply it and precut and gather the net for you. Also included in the price are elastic, interfacing, nude lycra, basic trims and all materials to make a headpiece. Dates I am offering are 20/21 October, 10/11 November, 8/9 December, 15/16 December and 12/13 January.

TUTUS THAT DANCE SEMINAR IN MELBOURNE. Suzanne Dieckmann from Las Vegas, is planning to run one of her amazing seminars in Melbourne in February 2013. Dates,location and classes are still being finalised but will include traditional and stretch tutu making (I will be teaching the stretch part). As Woodend is an hour from Melbourne by car and has limited accommodation and public transport options, anyone coming from interstate may prefer to attend my stretch classes here, there will be places for around 20 students and of course the option to attend classes in traditional tutu making as well.

Tutus, tutus, tutus!

Been working flat out since I got back to complete orders for upcoming comps. These were all finished this week. Still got one more to finish off, then two more to make, then I might be able to think about running some classes.
This saphire blue and cream tutu was designed totally by its 13 year old owner, I was very impressed with Tahlia's ideas. I only posted it to her today, so hope it is exactly what she was envisaging.
