Join Milliner Leslie Robinson for this introductory small hat making class. You will learn the fundamentals of shaping and trimming a headpiece that is perfect for holiday parties. Play with hat bases, headbands, clips and fabrics to create a unique Fascinator or “Cocktail Shape” that can be finished in one session. Leslie will have a variety of base materials on-hand (buckram, sinamay, horsehair crinoline wire, etc) for the Millinery-Curious to see and try. Flowers, ribbon and all the trimmings will also be provided. Hand sewing experience helpful, though not required.
Leslie Robinson is a Maker that hails from rural Illinois. She has spent the past twenty-something years soaking up the vibrant feast that is Los Angeles. Always interested in fashion and design, she spontaneously registered for a class from a local hat maker. One session convinced her that this was her passion and calling. She has since become a full time Milliner, having sewn for several seasons for Louise Green Millinery. She is currently involved in a Repair and Restoration project for Eastern Costume’s large hat repository. Leslie teaches courses on all aspects of Millinery–join her for a class and learn how putting on a hat can change your life!
