Felts, Feathers, Fabrics: Millinery Today

June 14, 2020 – June 20, 2020

Jan Wutkowski

Millinery (hat-making) is an old craft that constantly changes due to the introduction of new materials and ways to use time-honored expertise. In this workshop students will discover millinery techniques including blocking, creating contrasting insets of shapes flush into the hat, feather work to create feather flowers and floating feathers. You will also learn ways to clip, curl and shape luscious fabrics to create fashion-forward small hats for all occasions. Professional embellishment and finishing techniques are also covered. Open to all skill levels.


Jan Wutkowski studied millinery at the Melbourne School of Millinery in Australia and has been creating bespoke hats and headpieces since 1995. Wutkowski teaches at arts and crafts schools throughout the U.S. as well as in England, France, Ireland and Australia. She has been teaching millinery since 1998 with an emphasis on honoring traditional techniques while experimenting and embracing new materials and techniques.
