The idea behind this one day workshop is to introduce you to felt in a different way. Rather than the traditional blocking method, you will learn how to manipulate the felt whilst on the block to create a different look. You will still go through the process of stiffening the felt and, depending on your finished look, we will decide whether you will need to wire it. You will be guided through the process of attaching a head fixture which will help you in your future work.
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.
