Millinery Arts Coalition

Soon after I met Donald Wasson, my millinery instructor, I was seriously bitten by the “I must do this professionally!” bug. He quickly introduced me to some of his former students who have carved out their own niches to become professional milliners.Together, we have formed the Millinery Arts Coalition. We have held a few events in the past and hope to do even more this year. Our next event, Millinery as Sculpture, is an exhibition of our work that promises to be creative and different! It will be held at the BOX Gallery in Akron June 14 – July 27. Stay tuned for more information on this exciting event.

The group recently met to discuss strategy and swap some hat blocks, the forms over which we stretch straw, felt or other materials to form differently shaped hats. These are my colleagues Dee Hall and Lee St. Marie; coalition members Cynthia Lundeen and Donald Wasson are not pictured. Happy blocking, my friends!
