The Class, the Wonderful Class!
For those that are interested, I am offering a two-day, seven-hour straw and felt blocking class. The class will include blocking and finishing, sizing, polishing (fur felt), trimming, simple silk and leather flower making, etc.
Along side millinery instruction and as requested, I will be teaching hatting (the making of men hats) techniques, including valuable techniques that set men hats apart from women hats. The class will learn how to use open crown hat blocks (plain blocks, having no definition) and how to "bash (crease and telescope)" their hats by hand in order to achieve a number of popular men shapes (fedora, cowboy, pork pie) .
This is a two-day class, and it will be held July 27 and August 3, 10:00 a.m. to 1:30 p.m., in Southern California, South Bay area, Torrance, California. The cost of the class is $245. One straw and one felt (wool or fur--by request) and trim are included in the cost of the class. Homework required. This class is suitable for all levels. I'm sure advance students will benefit because I use some hatting techniques when making my own hats, techniques that many milliners do not use..
