During this 3 day workshop you will learn how to steam and block felt and/or straw,
using traditional millinery techniques on vintage hat blocks. Millinery
is a vast subject, and this workshop will serve as a general
introduction to the craft. In this class you will design and block two
hats. Your choice of felt or straw.

Techniques covered are:
1. Blocking and shaping on wooden millinery blocks
2. Basic millinery related stitches
3. Inserting wire in the brim, and brim edge finishes
4. Measuring headsizes and custom fitting hats
5. Embellishing with decorative trim; ribbons, flowers, felt/straw braids, veiling and feathers
