Hat Pin Making Class

  • Jill Courtemanche Millinery 410 S Cedros Ave Solana Beach, CA, 92075 United States (map)

Join Chae McGuire, jewelry and beading artist, at the JCM Studio to make your own Hat Pins! We will be using a variety of high-quality gemstones and gold/gold-filled wire to create custom pieces. 

While we are busily constructing our hat pins, Chae will give us a brief history of hat pins, and demonstrate how to properly wear one!

Cost: $45

Click here to register. Registration includes materials to create one hat pin, and additional hat pin kits will be available for $10 at the class. 

Before the class, check out the American Hat Pin Society for inspiration, and Jill's recent post for the Royal Hats blog on how the royals keep their hats on.
