“Blocking the shape and draping the pinch”

In this 2-day workshop students will learn to block a felt into a classic fedora or bowler shape using a 2 part hat block and customizing the hat with the hand draping method to create the crown shape of choice.

This workshop is appropriate for first time students and continuing students who would like to learn more about shaping the crown by hand and furthering hat trimming skills.
