Enrol in Millinery - The Art of Hat Making

Course Code: ARTS0516

Please note: Basic cutting and sewing skills are required to participate in this course.
This course is an introduction to the basic millinery technique of hand blocking. You will enjoy the rare opportunity to make use of vintage wooden hat blocks, or moulds. These vintage wood moulds provide a fascinating visual history of different hat styles of the 20th century. Learn hand blocking techniques for both felt and straw materials, as well as assembly and embellishment practices to create a unique, one-of-a-kind hat. Retro or contemporary, classic, or funky, it's up to you. Please bring a reliable sewing machine that is in good working order.

Some courses require additional textbooks and/or materials. Please visit your campus bookstore in-person or online: Peterborough Bookstore or Lindsay Bookstore.
