Blocking Felt into a Fedora: November 5th-6th w/Jenny Pfanenstiel


In stock

Perfect for Beginners:

Learn from Master Milliner and Featured Milliner of the 147th Kentucky Derby Jenny Pfanenstiel, on how to make a hat from scratch using a technique that dates back over 100 years.  You will understand the uses of the different hat blocks, some dating back 100 years. Each person will learn the different types of felt for blocking and how they are best used.  You will learn how to mold the felt to form it over a hat block to make a shape of a hat. We will be blocking both a crown and a brim out of felt. On the second day, we will wire the brim, add a lining, hand sew a sweatband into crown, then finish with a grosgrain crown band and bow.  Each person will walk away with a beautiful felt hat that they can wear with pride.  Classes will start on Friday: 2-6 and finish up on Saturday: 11-4. Materials for this course can be purchased before, or on the first day.
