By popular demand, we are offering a two-day Felt Blocking Workshop, where you will make your own felt hat from start to finish!  Students will learn the technique of hat blocking, including: manipulating the felt on wooden hat blocks, wiring the brim, finishing hats to the appropriate size, and basic trimming techniques. 

In the workshop, students will block one rabbit fur felt hat. Jill will walk you through the process from start to finish, and a variety of trimming techniques will be demonstrated. All materials to block and trim your hat are included in the price of the class. 

In our best attempt to accommodate all students' stylistic preferences, we will email you about your wishes for felt and trim colors before the class. Class dates and times are:

  • Saturday, November 11th, 10:00am - 1:00pm

  • Sunday, November 12th, 10:00am - 4:00pm (Lunch will be served)

Cost of the workshop: $395.00

Students are welcomed and encouraged to bring their personal sewing machines so as to learn the process of hat finishing on a machine they are familiar and comfortable working on (so you can continue on your hat-making journey from home). This class is designed for more advanced sewers, and students who have taken our intro class.

Please feel free to call or email us with any further questions you may have about this exciting workshop! 

Sign-up throughout online checkout, or call us at the store 323.822.5840. Class size is limited to four students.
