Specialist Millinery: Styrofoam Block Making

Key Course Information

This 2-day course will introduce students to the techniques used to make styrofoam (polystyrene) blocks. Hand carving blocks from styrofoam is an indispensable skill for many milliners – as an inexpensive alternative to a wood block; as a way to develop a shape and test it before having it carved in wood; and as a way of developing individual personalized block shapes. The course will cover using a range of tools to carve, refine, smooth, and seal the styrofoam into a unique hat block shape.
