This course is a wonderful journey to discover why humans have covered their heads since time immemorial. Initially headwear offered protection from the elements and from injury from falling rocks, weapons or masonry. Later head coverings became symbols of status of authority. Soon after hats progressed to become not only a uniform, but also an art form.
We will study the origin of Milliners. In English courts the term milliner was used and this was derived from the term for travelling haberdashers from Milan in Italy. These travelling sales people sold all the items necessary to dress and were called millaners.
In France hats were made by hatmakers called chapeliers. Today the term modiste is used in France.
This course combines the millinery techniques so that you can complete your experience with making your own will be able to make your own fashion hats.
By the end of the course successful learners will be able to:
- Associate hats with right historical periods
- Describe the characteristics of hats through the years
- Make a simple fashion hat using millinery technique
