Vintage Inspired Woolfelt Hats

October 18, 2018 - October 20, 2018

The 1930s & 40s were among the most inventive periods of hat history. Difficult events worldwide left milliners with little to work with but their own ingenuity. This lead to a flowering of small-scale creative shapes. In this three-day class, instructor Laura Whitlock will guide student through the process of creating hats inspired by this period.

  • Day 1: We’ll choose a style, alter a basic pattern to produce that shape, and construct a small period-inspired woolfelt hat.
  • Day 2: We’ll construct a second hat, this time focusing on draping techniques to create the silhouette.
  • Day 3: Students will learn to make a variety of self-trims to adorn our small-scale chapeaux. We will also focus on the special attachments to hold these lovelies in place on the head.
