"Hi Silpa, What did you use to make the percher? If you use leather or heavy leather flowers it can add weight to the head when wearing. I made a couple from sinamay and used sinamay leaves and a braid covered quill. The percher was very comfy to…"

"I paint the headband (to match the client's hair) as well, and I find that the headbands Rebecca taught to go with the percher, don't need elastic."

Hi there,I have been making quite a few perchers lately after doing a Rebecca Share course, but I was just wondering what people use to cover the wire frame? And also, how do you attach the elastic to the wire frame so it looks nice, instead of just a knot.Thank you for all of your help!See More

I Love Hats Because?
Hats are a great way to finish off an outfit and create individuality. Creating hats allows me to express my creativity and de-stress from my full-time job.
About Me
I am employed full time as a nurse, but have been creating hats for myself and my friends for quite a few years. Now I'm finding the more I create, the more I want to learn about the art of millinery

Wonderful you found our website Michelle. So pleased you have joined me in Hat Academy and hope you find it inspiring. I am committed to helping you add to your skills.

I set this up to help Beginners -once you learn the basic techniques you will be surprised how creative you can be. Millinery is a creative art & in huge demand currently. Any questions do message me here. Glad to see how much you are loving it - "addictive" should be on the warning label -I  celebrate 50yrs of hat making next year.

To make the most of Hat Academy remember to read through the Welcome Page - Read here

Enjoy, Elaine
