Millinery classes begin

I’ll be teaching a beginning millinery class on Mondays, from 6 to 8:30 p.m., May 7 to June 11 (no class on Memorial day).

We’ll begin with the easiest material to work with: millinery-grade felt. This is not the same process as “felting” a hat. Picture the material used to make a fedora. That’s the stuff. You will learn to make a hat from the very beginning: blocking the felt, to the end: lining the hat. In the middle there are a whole bunch of steps that generally involve a needle and thread and some ribbon. Some proficiency with said needle and thread is helpful but not necessary.

Classes will take place at Otlak Felt Studio in the DeWitt-Seitz building and will cost $150 plus $56 in supplies. You can email me at emily @ moesewco.com for questions and to register. Space is limited, so jump right in there.

Speaking as someone who knows Emily AND as a well-known hat-wearer, this will be an excellent class.

Oh! Oh! Oh! Sorry I don't want to take your classes. But you are just who I am looking for! I have an Australian Akubra hat that I have been looking all over for someone to block. Could you do it for me?! Would be so pleased if you could!
