We were able to share our blocking skills; the art of forming a 2D fabric over a 3D shape, the block, using steam and pins. This is one of the basics of hat making, it's how the hat shape is created.
We were also able to show the variety of ways hand sewing is required to make a hat. From creating the hat base, the decoration, and finishing off a design ready for wearing.
We will shortly be releasing a programme of talks and demonstrations which can be booked for Winter/Spring 2017. If you run a group and would like us to come and show your attendees what we do, please do get in touch.
