MILLINERY

This Millinery course will teach you the skills and techniques used to block and shape straws and felt hoods to create your own individual hat design. Working with wooden blocks and other novel forms, you will learn how to improvise block building with household objects.

You will learn how to:

  • Assemble
  • Fit
  • Block
  • Shape
  • Stiffen
  • Wire
  • Stitch
  • Trim
  • Finish your hat

This course is suitable for beginners and the more advanced student as the classes are small.

EQUIPMENT

You will need to purchase for the first lesson materials such as strong pins with coloured heads (steel if possible), thumb tacks, a thimble, tape measure, sewing needles, thread and scissors. Accessories & trimmings may be required to finish hats according to your taste & progress in finishing the hat.
On the first lesson please bring one of the following depending on the kind of hat you wish to make:

  • A felt hood for the felt course.
  • A straw hood and/or 1.5 meters Sinamay for the straws course.

These materials can be purchased at any good Millinery suppliers or online. During the 6 week module there is more time to order than for the 4 day course.
