Cap Workshop

Saturday, Feb. 7, 2015, 10:00–4pm

Location: Waltham, MA

We'll start the class by looking at a range of caps and learn how their style evolved over a twenty-year period. You will then try on many types of caps both plain and fancy from the mid-1760's to the early 1780's. You get to pick the one best suited for your impression (and that looks best on you) and then sew your new cap.

All these caps are either patterned from originals and use period construction methods combined with designs modeled from extant caps from period artwork.

At the end of the class, depending on the complexity of your cap you should be well on its way to completion.

Cost: $50, which includes all materials (There is a small materials surcharge for some of the fancier caps).
