learned to block a straw or felt hat, the next challenge for many students is
successful trimming of their hats. Learn to create elegant sashing, draping and
bows with silk dupioni, organza and chiffon fabrics or ribbons. Create simple or
dramatic trims with flowers,
feathers, straw braids, felt and straw remainders. Please plan to bring several hats that are ready for trimming. - (the brims are sewn or finished and the headsize ribbons sewn in) Most work will be done by hand with some light use
of sewing machines. You decide how fast you work and how much you do. Wayne
always does his best to ensure everyone leaves with professional looking hats
they will enjoy wearing.
Create vintage inspired and unique contemporary embellishments and trims using your “scrap” felt, straw and fabric. You will fashion feathers, leaves, ties & bows, nuts and pods and learn to wire your materials for expert control of shape and line.
