Hi Susie We do have a few courses which include working with felt but nothing specific from a Hatters perspective - A Hatter makes Male hats as in trilby and fedoras plus. Check out the Hatters specific Blocks here.  Stay well & safe, Elaine

Hi Susie, Welcome to the world of hatting. It's different materials & blocks. I block both trilbys & fedoras but when I was learning I couldn't find online instructions. Its different then millinery in that you do "all-in-one" blocking upside down. What I've seen most online instruction they teach it doing two-part - crown & brim. Katherine Elizabeth does an online trilby course using this method. 

My studio is half millinery & half hatting. I have some of the tools if you want me to post some pictures. 

I'm fortunate because I live in cattle country so at most stock shows there's hatters that set up booths to clean & reshape Cowboy hats. They're open to answering questions.
