Regular price $868.18 $0.00 Unit price per

For those millinery students wanting to dip their toe into hat making, this is the perfect week. Geared towards beginners, Louise Macdonald will show you how to make a straw sun hat using traditional millinery techniques. Boater, fedora or perhaps you prefer a round crown; you'll learn about a milliner's main tools of trade, blocks, where to source materials and equipment, how to make a hat to fit a particular head size and a variety of finishing techniques.

You'll also make a tiara or halo style headpiece from wire under the tuition of Lauren Ritchie. Louise will also demonstrate trimming techniques: tulle pom poms and how to make a detachable veil. An action packed week of fun, connection and learning.
