7 hour class wit lunch brake. All materials included and you get to keep the hat block! You will be able to choose your brim size and the decorations. If you have any precious decor items , such as beads, broaches, feathers, etc. please bring them along and Kathleen will help you to incorporate those and make your hat very personalized. This is a great class to learn construction of a straw hat, including shaping over the hat block.
Start playing at home by finding your hat size. Here is how:
Place the string or measuring tape around your head about 1/8" above your ear, across the mid-forehead, completely circling your head. Hold the tape firmly, but not too tightly. Basically you need toyour head exactly where the will sit. If your falls between sizes, choose the next largest size.
So far we planing Saturday class only, but with enough interest we would consider adding a Sunday class as well.
