Block making & felt blocking workshop
February 7 - March 14
This workshop is the whole deal: from creating your own hat block to designing the hat of your dreams. All in one immersive 6-day experience!
We will start with the Hat Block, the essential tool for every hat maker’s creative process.
Adi Bertacchi, the owner of Cappelleria Bertacchi, will provide you with instructions to design your own hat block. Adi will share all family’s secrets to make durable foam blocks. Once the block is ready Adi will share the felt hat making fundamentals. Adi will explain the different types of felt, steaming techniques, and blocking essentials as well as how to cut the felt and shape it.
