Felt for Beginners

Felt for Beginners

This one day course gives the student a general introduction to felt giving them an insight to the blocking and stiffening process involved to create a beautiful headpiece. The day is designed for individuals who have little or no experience in felt, and who want to explore felt and understand its true abilities for headwear under the guidance of our qualified tutors.

The day has been structured in order to allow you the time to block, wire and trim a cloche, button or vintage style headpiece using a block from our extensive range we have available. The blocks will be explained to you so you can decide what is best for a felt creation, you will be encouraged to write notes as you work through the day in order to reflect back on what you have made, there will also be time for questions should any arise at the end of the day.
