Wayne Wichern Millinery Studio - Burlingame, CA

Wayne Wichern / Ballard Millinery Studio - Seattle, WA

Learn the fine art of millinery and hat making. Create your own beautiful hats! Beginning and Advanced workshops provide ideal opportunities to explore the world of millinery whether you're an aspiring milliner or simply interested in making hats for personal pleasure. Wayne is an experienced and skillful teacher who generously shares his knowledge. Two well-equipped studios, each with an extraordinary collection of vintage and contemporary hat blocks provide unique environments for your creativity to flourish.

Using traditional wood hat blocks, millinery felts and straw materials you will learn to block and shape hats, then create trims and embellishments to complete your wonderful hats. Small classes insure personal attention and regardless of your experience, Wayne will adapt instruction and class work to your individual needs and assist you in creating wonderful hats. Studio Locations: Burlingame, CA (near the San Francisco Airport) and Seattle, WA (Ballard/Fremont neighborhood).

At the beginning of 2016 I relocated back to the Seattle area. I now maintain two working studios -ne in Seattle in the Ballard/Fremont neighborhood and the other in Burlingame, CA. I travel down to the Burlingame studio every other month to teach and meet with clients. The Burlingame studio address is 1777 California Drive, Burlingame, CA 94010 - Studios 7 Located in the Peninsula Museum Studios and across the courtyard from the Peninsula Museum of Art. The facility is a former office building which has been transformed into 30 artist studios. There is plenty of parking and the Millbrae BART / Caltrain Station is a few blocks away. The studio is 10 minutes from the San Francisco Airport and near accommodations and services.
