KOSAKA – 220 W. 13th Street (between Greenwich and Seventh Avenues)

Admission: $45

Make and decorate a hat for Easter or for a festive spring party at this workshop led by hat designer Miki Katagiri. Use your imagination to create new headpiece for celebrating a beautiful spring. Participants will also learn how to make flowers out of felt to decorate the hat. The base of the hat will be provided, but participants may bring their own if they prefer.

Katagiri came to New York City 26 years ago from Tokyo. She is like an alchemist in the sense that she can turn whatever she finds into a hat! She has 13 years of industry experience at Patricia Underwood studio, refining millinery production patterns for the top moneymakers. Seasonal clients have included Ralph Lauren, Oscar de la Renta, Michael Koss, Jill Stewart, and Malia Mills. Her hats have been represented in Showroom 7 and GGrippo, and she teaches at Parsons and offers workshops at her studio in Brooklyn.

Part of KOSAKA, a sushi restaurant in the West Village, KOSAKA Art program promotes Japanese traditional culture in New York City, with the ultimate role of sharing and continuing the dialogue for a diverse audience. Every month, the program creates opportunities for all ages to experience Japanese culture, through culinary and arts and crafts programs.

Light snacks and green tea will be served after the workshop.
