Explore over 150 different hat blocks, which are used to make traditional hats, we will create your own hat by blocking and steaming felt over the mould. Finish the day by decorating and adding your own style to the hat and if time permits, enjoy a pub visit in one of the traditional country pubs in the village. Create your own hat, choosing from over 150 different hat blocks, (the moulds needed to shape your hat), learn how to steam and block a hat using traditional hat making techniques.
