Man working on a hat

Join millinery designer Wayne Wichern for a presentation and conversation about the creation of his exquisite hats, in celebration of the exhibition The Global Language of Headwear. Behind each hat design is a shaping tool known as a hat block, which felt and straw are pulled, or “blocked,” over to give a hat its unique shape. These blocks are infinite in variety and complexity and come together with the material to create wearable works of art. Wayne will also discuss the processes and art behind modern headwear.
