Students will create hat designs for modern dress using old world techniques of shaping buckram on a head block and felting wool. Students will learn the basic techniques of millinery design and incorporate those skills into their own original designs. Structure, shaping and support will be covered along with the materials needed to create a variety of hat styles.
