Take a peak inside the life of a hat-maker and let us introduce you to our world of hand-crafted headwear; the art of hat-making.

Taking place downtown in our NYC atelier, we will begin with a brief history of the craft, interact with age old tools and learn how they work within the hat making process. Following a brief tutorial with the tools of the trade, we will begin an interactive demonstration encouraging hands on participation from the group.

Following the history and interactive experience, you will have the opportunity for a one-on-one consultation with the hat-maker himself. After your personal consultation, you will be able to customize & purchase your own piece from scratch. Search through our stash of one-of-a-kind, vintage, handmade trinkets and materials sourced from all over the world to complete your piece.
Other things to note
You will have the opportunity to purchase a custom hat at the end.
Price depends on the quality of material/details.

I booked this experience for my husband's birthday, as he is a bit of a 'craft nerd'. I honestly wasn't expecting to enjoy this as much as I truly did. Not only does Brandon have an immense range of knowledge and experience on the art of hat making, he is also a natural teacher who understands how to make even the more technical aspects of the process both understandable and entertaining. I learned a great deal, and I will definitely look at hats differently from now on! Brandon is also incredibly personable, and it is clear that he wants to share his passion with all of the participants. For example, he spent extra time with us at the end ensuring that we had the proper hat measurements and a good sense of the types of styles that would look good on us. Above and beyond in terms of care and time. Would highly recommend!

Let me just say that this was an absolutely one of a kind experience in NYC. Brandon made us feel welcomed and comfortable from the very beginning. His history and stories about his inception into the hat making craft was captivating. It was held in a very intimate setting which helped the experience feel individualized. Brandon has an infectious passion for hat making (totally forgot the official term, sorry Brandon lol) and he’ll have you leaving with the same passion...unfortunately for my husband though, I’m still not that passionate about ironing 😅 Don’t forget to autograph the special hat on your way out!!

"The Art of Hat Making" class at B.M. Franklin & Co was by far one of the most educational and immersive experiences my wife and I have encountered. Brandon Franklin's cognoscente knowledge of hat making, interactive demonstration with age old tools, hands-on learning teaching style, coupled with his warm, charismatic and comedic personality made this experience utterly exceptional. In preparation for Valentine's Day, I e-mailed Brandon weeks before the class and requested that he begin the process of making a custom, top of the line, hand-crafted hat for my wife -an arrant hat enthusiast. During the class, my wife was drawn to a beautiful marigold -one of her favorite colors - felt hat which was partially constructed and remained untouched. Once the class finished, Brandon and I surprised her. "You see that Marigold felt hat...well, your husband purchased it and it's yours." My wife began to cry tears of joy and excitement. As Brandon continued to masterfully construct her hat, my wife was able to choose from a wide variety of fabrics, feathers, and other custom materials to make her hat uniquely hers. My wife says this was her favorite Valentine's Day experience yet. I couldn't have pulled this off without Brandon, a genius and master in his craft.

Brandon had a lot of insight into the world of hat making. Lots of hands-on opportunities to participate. Friendly and inviting atmosphere. Allowed us to take our time after the session ended and answered more of our questions. Come a little early to ensure you have time to access the building.
