With Edie Orenstein

$395 [Includes $75 lab fee] class limit 12. Jan 31, Feb 1, 2, 2020 (Fri, Sat, Sun 10am-4pm).

This three-day introduction will lead you through the design and construction of a traditional European-style cloth cap. You may choose from two popular styles: the “newsboy” or “poor boy” style and the “flat cap” often identified as a driving hat. Although these hats appear deceptively simple, you will learn the special tailoring skills needed to enhance their fit and complete the desired look. All materials are supplied. Students will learn such skills as, taping, lining, bill construction, and inserting sweatbands.
