Professional hat making is a specialist three-year course in which you learn all aspects of hat making. You will be trained as a skilled hatter. You will learn everything about customizing existing molds, making patterns, and using different materials & techniques. Every week you practice your skills in making the different models and making methods of hats by hand. With me, you will learn the craft and design of hats yourself. It’s about making something that is completely yours and developing your own style as a result. At the end of each year, you will be awarded a certificate of participation.
After following this training you will be able to make hats for every occasion. Every year you finish with a certificate of a craftsman hatmaker and you have learned to make at least 4 types of hats.
