Mister Faux, 1904

Anyone can dress in costume and read out of a history book, but with Arrogant Frenchman Productions history literally comes to life!

Mister Faux
Mr. Fox

Mister Faux is highly skilled in the design and execution of many kinds of handmade lace, especially his internationally award-winning bobbin lace. Before the advent of "The War to End All Wars," handmade lace was sought by the very well-placed socialite. Those who were not so fortunate as to be able to purchase these pieces of lace fit for a queen's ransom learned to make their own at home. Ladies magazines of the time often carried the latest of patterns that the lady who wanted to be well-dressed but was of modest means might execute for herself and her household. Women of lesser social standing might produce lace which could be sold to augment her family's meager income.

Mister Faux will gladly impart to both ladies and other females (as well as those males so inclined to business) the intricacies of bobbin lace. Even children can learn to practice this newfound skill to aid the family income and to be less of a burden to their parents. The public can also be enlightened on other lace making methods if desired.

Mister Faux can also explain, demonstrate, and teach the technique of making hair flowers using the hair of a loved one. Besides hair flowers, there is at present being practiced an interesting method of making jewelry from human hair. What a wonderful remembrance of family members near or far away. Because there has been some confusion about the hair used for such remembrances, it should be noted that the donors of the hair for such pieces of jewelry are very much alive.
