Block your Socks Off! Workshop

October 21 - October 23


Experience Blocking is Needed:  Come spend a few days in the new Judith M classroom in La Grange, KY and let the expanded assortment of antique hat blocks inspire you. With literally hundreds of shapes to choose from, you may be surprised where your creativity takes you! For this class, students will be able to block unlimited hats utilizing any material they purchase from the shop during class, or any materials brought from home. You are also invited to bring blocks from your personal inventory, if something you own has you “puzzled”. Also covered will be blocking on found objects, You will never look at your dinner plate the same way again! This is the all-you-can-eat-buffet of hat blocking workshops. In this 3 day course, you can expect to block anywhere from 2 – 12 hats, it’s up to you. Just wear something comfy, roll up those sleeve, and prepare to block your socks off! Includes a tour of the NEW Judith M Millinery Supply House. Each attendee will receive 10% off of materials purchased for the workshop and to take home. Click HERE for a PLACE TO STAY in La Grange.

About the Milliner:
Laura Hubka’s designs often begin on paper, but it is not until her hands and materials converge that her creations begin to take on life. Because she takes great pride in her craftsmanship, Laura trims each of her pieces with a delicate hand. To her, the work is all about color and texture. The contrast between a plush velour and a shiny buckle. The silhouettes are classic, even playful, but never fussy. The lines are clean and flattering to a woman’s face. The result is contemporary, wearable, and shamelessly feminine.
A native Chicagoan, Laura also studied Millinery in both her hometown and New York City. As a Millinery Instructor at Judith M Millinery Supply for over a decade, she has taught students from all over North America and made many friends along the way. As an award winning Milliner, her work has been featured in print, film and theater, and her creations have traveled to some of the most glamorous events in the world.

Covid Protocol: We ask that if you are not fully vaccinated, to please wear a mask during your time here. We appreciate your cooperation.
Please note, due to preparing materials for each student ahead of time, there are no refunds. If an emergency shall arise, I am more than happy to reschedule with you.
