Photo Shoots and Hat Classes

It’s good to be busy!  I know I have been horribly slacking on my site but it’s for good reason.  This past week I had a photo shoot and a hat class on top of making hats for the Kentucky Derby.  Also after a amazing Hunt & Gather show I was able to buy a new cloche block and have been busy playing with a much bigger hat style than I’m used to.  But first the hat class!

Clients-001It amazes me every time all the different ideas and styles my students can come up with that I never thought of before.  This class was Daring Derby and all the students learned what it takes to make a fabulous hat for the Kentucky Derby.  After a demonstrations they learned to wire, finish, and design there own hats.  Some were planning to wear there new pieces to Derby parties while others want to add them to there everyday attire.  The next class is Madhatting & Tea July 23 where we will decorate fascinators or mini-top hats.  I’ll have details soon.

Also last week I had a amazing shoot with Chris Zibutis.  We got to take shots of my latest pieces modeled by myself and Monica Zibutis (his wife and also a photographer).  It’s amazing how photos can make such a big difference in how your hats look!  You can see some of the sneak peeks here.  I also have added the new pieces to my shop if your looking for something fabulous to wear to the races or any party this spring.

My next show is July 26th in Three Oaks, Michigan for Art Attack.  I hope you can stop by!
