What You’ll Do
Nowadays it can be easy to believe that clothes just appear out of thin air—but this notion has never occurred to Susan Morehead. In her 2.5-hour class, the milliner teaches students to forge a deeper relationship with the fabric they wear while designing and creating their own hat. After customizing every element, from material to shape, students take home a work of art as unique as they are.
Design Your Own Hat
Pick a material—felt or straw—in a color of your choice, then choose a style and size of hat block to determine the shape of the finished piece.
Use Traditional Millinery Techniques Learn the process of blocking a hat using custom hat blocks, while benefitting from Susan’s knowledge of design and hat-making history.
Weather the Heat
Hat-making involves steaming, so Susan recommends her students dress in layers to accommodate the studio’s temperature changes.
Growing up in a family that valued domestic craftsmanship, Susan Morehead sewed her first stitches when she was just four years old. From there, she went on to bolster her already formidable experience by earning a fine arts degree in fashion design and starting her own line of hats under the banner of Suzseams. Since then, Susan has taught her craft to others and seen her work featured on Better Mornings Atlanta, Talk of Alabama, and Daily Candy.
