Millinery - Cloche Hat Making Workshop


About the Course

This one day workshop will teach you all the skills required to make your own cloche hat, using a choice of two pattern blocks, either "Vivienne"or "Freya" from Elsewhen Millinery

The "Vivienne"cloche hat is designed in the style of the 1920's. The brim folds up in the front, forming a whimsical point to one side. A set of pleats accents the back of the hat. It makes a lovely hat for young children and adults alike and provides full coverage for the hair line and a little shade for the face. The hat can be made in light summer fabrics or cozy cool-weather fabrics, with or without binding.

The "Freya" cloche is also in the style of the 1920's. This lovely hat has a fold up brim and can be decorated with pleats, netting, buttons, bows or flowers.
