BYO(P)B! Vintage Puzzle Blocks
Bring Your Own Puzzle Block! A Covid-era modification of my favorite class!
In this 2 day workshop, you will learn how to make a beautiful felt hat, working with a wooden puzzle block from your own collection. Puzzle, or sectional, hat blocks are specially designed to separate into 4-5 sections for removal of the blocked material. If you have a complicated or intimidating block, this is the perfect opportunity to have an experienced tutor show you how it was designed to work, what all those rope lines mean, even how to modify the shape for a more modern style.
PLEASE NOTE: This is a weekend course. On Saturday, March 13th we will meet from 2-5 PM CST (GMT -6) to steam and shape the felt hat bodies over the blocks. They will dry overnight and then we will meet on Sunday, March 14th from 2 - 5 PM CST to finish the hats.
Skill Level: Previous hand sewing skills strongly recommended.
Requires one felt cone (wool or fur) and a puzzle hat block (new or vintage)
