About once a week, I receive an email or a phone call from someone asking me whether I teach Millinery Classes.
Some call from quite far away; apparently it’s hard to find Millinery Instructors.
So far, I’ve taught students from all over the US as well as from as far away as Israel and Australia.
I teach classes, hold workshops and give private millinery/ hat making instructions; to receive updates about the upcoming classes and workshops, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org .
The classes have a fixed topic, such as hand-blocked straw hat, sculpted 20ies velour cloche, fascinator etc. as a means to teach you a set of classical millinery skills that you can then use for more projects; you will walk away with your finished hat. The class description also includes the skills necessary to take the class successfully.
The classes are usually held in 2-hour blocks over the course of 4-5 weeks, with a maximum class size of 8 students; to sign-up to the classes held through the Adult School of the Chathams, Madison and Florham Park click here.
Workshops are usually one day, minimum 3 hours.
They can be booked for larger groups, for example a women’s club; please email email@example.com for more information.
Individual instructions are also available; scheduling and curriculum are flexible and tailored to your interests and level of millinery experience. The maximum number of students for these tailored classes is 3.
