Flapper Hat (Making A Cloche Hat), NIADA Artist

Cost: $35 for 4 lessons


In this project we will be learning how to make cloche hat.  The roaring 20's were a transition in fashion.  This was a time that women broke their bonds of tight corsets and multilayer clothing.  Hats became sleek and simplified.  Clocke is French for "bell".

Often, different styles of ribbons affixed to the hats indicated different messages about the wearer.  Several popular messages included: An arrow-like ribbon which indicated a girl was single but had already given her heart to someone, a firm knot which signaled marriage or a flamboyant bow which indicated the wearer was single and interested in mingling.  Think about your message as you create these wonderful hats.

Come join me in this fun adventure of creating a Cloche hat.
