Fine Bespoke Hat Making at Watson’s
April 9, 2017 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm$18
Our private tour of the Watson Hat Shop in Cave Creek will highlight the rare antique equipment in use to make custom hats. As owner Eric Watson walks us through the hat making process, he will demonstrate traditional techniques and machines like a late 1800s conformateur used to take a template of the customer’s head shape. Try your hand at steaming and using the 1889 initialing machine to impress your initials on a sweatband to take home. Refreshments provided.
