This workshop is open to those wishing to change hats they bring to workshops. Participants may use new blocked hats, or untrimmed previously blocked felt, straws, or covered hats, but all embellishments including glue must be removed. During this workshop, attendees may each bring two hats. They will re-design their hats and create embellishments using items they bring from home such as fabric, pendants, jewelry, etc. Other embellishments will also be for sale during each workshop.
TuesdaysOne 8-hour Trim and Embellishment workshop $150.00
During this workshop, participants will learn techniques for creating various sample embellishments, they will use horsehair, buckram, leaves, millinery wire, yardage goods, and other materials furnished in the registration fee.
Wednesdays One 8-hour Creative Covering workshop $150.00
Participants will learn techniques for using lace, feathers, flowers, and other materials they bring to the workshop. They also have the option of covering frames with fabric using one or more technique of draping, stripping, puffing, or layering. Each participant will custom designed a one-of-a-kind hat they created using their supplies, and one buckram frame of their choice, lining, and grosgrain included in the registration fee.
During this workshop participants will hand-block, wire and embellish felts and straws bodies, and sinamay they bring to the workshop. They will be instructed on blocking, embellishing, and completing the projects, and I will provide a combination of 50 traditional and fascinator hat blocks for their use.
The new frame making and covering workshops now consists of three 8-hour days to allow completion of more projects. Buckram frames will still be included, but frame making will be done on the first day.
(A) Frame-Making- Day 1 Participants will hand block, wire, and complete as many buckram hats shapes as time permits using wooden hat blocks and other materials included in the registration fee.
(B) Covering- Day 2 Participants will learn techniques for covering a round crown pillbox, and brim of their choice. After covering the outer portion of the basic frames, they may cover as many frames as time permits, or start the embellishment and lining process.
(C) Covering- Day 3 Participants will add embellishments, line, and complete all buckram frames.
(The 3-day frame making and covering workshop is considered ONE workshop because it entails more work and time than the other workshops. If you choose to add additional workshops, keep in mind you must register for the days as they are listed. There will be no deduction in registration fee if you do not attend all three days.
