This class provides beginning and experienced hat makers the opportunity to not only block and drape the straw, but also to dye it with easy to use dyes. Create ombre, shibori-style, or single color straws for your hats—rich and beautiful! Get ready for Spring hat-wearing events by creating 2 small hats (a demi chapeau and a cloche) using traditional techniques in millinery, including professional hand-stitching and finishing. Embellishment tricks-of-the-trade with ribbon, veiling, and flowers also included.  No experience necessary but basic hand-sewing skills encouraged.
