In this weekend class, students will learn to make a straw hat using a Panama straw hat body. These are handwoven in Ecuador from the fibers of a palm tree often called toquilla straw. 

Friday night the students will be blocking their hat bodies over one of our many vintage hat blocks. The hats will then be left to dry overnight. 

The second day, we will be finishing the brim edges, and sewing in a sweatband. The final touch will be adding a simple ribbon trim. Students can bring in additional trim if they wish. 

Class will meet Friday, May 31st from 5:00-7:00pm and Saturday, June 1st, from 10:00-4:00. One hour lunch break on Saturday. Hand sewing skills recommended but not required.
