Millinery Felt Course The course is structured to allow you to learn the process of wool felting and understand its true abilities for headwear. You will be welcomed in our friendly studio with coffee tea and Sicilian cannoli. We will start with a quick introduction of the different types of wool and felting processes (wet and needle). Each of you will have his own space to work with hat shapes and wool. You can choose from a wide range of colours of Merinos wool. By mean of water and soap we will start felting the wool needed for the hat. We will then show the techniques and skills needed to block and shape hoods to create elaborate and stylish headpieces from start to finish. When you have selected the shape you would like to work with we will go through the following steps: Prepare Block Stiffen Steam Block Remove from block Wire Stitch Trim Finish the hat. At the end of the course you will have completed a felt hat to take home with you!
I'm Roberta and together with Giulietta, we have a colourful weaving and craft studio. We love to create with our hands and we want to share our passions, as we believe it’s good for the soul! After working behind a desk in the cold London for 8 years, I decided to return to my hometown and dedicate my life to bringing back to life Sicilian traditions! So I joined Giulietta textile association, which promotes felting and weaving since 2013 through one-to-one and individual workshops for kids or eternal kids.

A place with good equipment and quality materials and in which you can try the magic hidden behind old hand- weaving looms used for traditional Sicilian blankets.
