Two-Day Draped Fur Felt Cloche

Two-Day Draped Fur Felt Cloche
Friday, November 16th 2-6pm and Saturday, November 17th 10am-3pm

Students will learn how to block a free-form cloche hat using a fur felt hood (hat body) and a balsa utility block. You will use steam to soften the felt and your fingers to manipulate it into pleats and folds that are pinned into place until dry. The technique allows for a wide range of design possibilities, but is especially suited for 1920's style flapper hats.

Class fee of $300 includes tuition and supplies.
