Atelier Berry Rutjes

Professional artisan hat making is a specialist three-year course of training, in which you will learn all aspects of hat making. You will be trained to become a skilled milliner. You will learn all about tailoring from existing molds, making patterns, and using different materials & techniques.

Every week, you practice your skills in making different models and methods of hat making by hand. With me, you will learn the craft and design of hats yourself. It is all about making something that is completely your own and developing your own style. Each year ends with a certificate of participation.

After completing this programme, you will be able to make hats for any occasion. Each year, you will conclude with a certificate as a traditional milliner and you will have learned to make at least 4 types of hats. At the end of 3 years, you will have learned to make 12 hats in the most common classic models.

To crown your work, you get to display your own collection for a month at Berry Rutjes’ hat salon on Noordeinde in The Hague!

Payment is possible in 9 parts a €577,50 each. Contact us for more information on the options.
