FREEFORM HAT BLOCKING WORKSHOP
Learn how to make a Gatsby 1920s style cloche, fedora, or cocktail hat that perfectly fits your style. Milliner Jasmin Zorlu will guide you through the exciting art of ‘Freeform Blocking’. Using steam and your fingers, manipulate a pre-formed fur felt cone on a standard balsa wood hat form and then hand-stitch it. This class is perfect for beginners who have no experience sewing.
FALL SCHEDULE 2013
Jasmin is available for private tutoring at a rate of $60/hr and will travel to your home.
"I believe anyone will be pleased with the skills they learn in any class taught by Jasmin Zorlu. You will go home with a one-of-a-kind hat you’ll be excited to wear! Jasmin’s instruction is clear and she will lead you through the hatmaking process step by step. She has a serious interest in making sure all her students understand exactly what to do. A great artist and a great teacher. I highly recommend her classes." —JG in SF
"Jasmin’s 2-day workshop was very delightful and informative. She is clear, caring and has a calming presence. What I enjoyed most about her workshop was the way she balanced form and freedom. She allows the creative process to unfold for each student and facilitates as needed. At the end of the workshop, I not only had a great hat of my own but felt that the hat came out of my own creativity. It was very fun and rewarding to work with such a creative, trusting and experienced teacher. I can’t wait to take another workshop and learn more as she has so much to offer."—LF in SF
