Event description
Love making hats but no time? Don't have the right hat blocks? Like to be part of a group?

About this Event

Are you an aspiring milliner but wanting to be a part of a group?

Do you have AT LEAST one quality wooden hat block that you can share with others?

If your answers are YES to both, you may like to join us for this get-together.

**This is not a class as we will not be teaching.

Our aims:

  1. Have a set time for attendees to work on their passion.
  2. Have an opportunity to 'swap' resources ie. hat block, rather than limiting to your own hat block(s).
  3. Learn from each other through interaction.

How does it work? (Ideally!)

  1. You MUST bring at least ONE hat block to the group.
  2. You will swap with others at the group, ideally everyone will end up with a block they want to block. ( Remember you may not always get what you wanted, further, you may already have those blocks, in that case, this will be a time to get to meet others and have a chat or work on your design etc :)
  3. While the hat is being set, you will be working on the trims etc.
  4. You will need to bring all of the materials that you need to work on.

At the end of three hours, you would have completed or started the following:

  1. Block at least one hat.
  2. Started on your trims.

Criteria:

  1. Please note that it is a MUST that you bring AT LEAST one quality wooden hatblock. We want to make sure everyone who attends get to block. You can bring more if you like.
  2. You had completed some form of training in millinery as we won't be teaching. If you have no experience with blocking or millinery, it's going to be hard for you and we don't want you to hate the experience!
  3. Most of the time your hats won't dry properly in 3 hours experience!), there are options to contact each other or you can pick it up later.

Millinery is a slow art :)

Ticket includes:

  • Light refreshments
  • Plenty of chats (if you like)
  • Ironing | Water - basics of milinery :) if needed

Venue : This group is held at a private residence in Wheelers Hill Victoria Australia Melbourne. Details will be sent out after confirmation.

Depending on the response, we may look at doing it on a recurring basis.

This is a pop up group for now.

Free feel to ask any questions before booking. Sales are final.
